Carver's RocksLeicestershire, ENGLAND
Climbs 30 – Rocktype Sandstone (soft) – Altitude ? – Faces NW
(Update March 2011 - just mountain bike'd past) Crag is now ruined (imho) by placement of dozens of bolts(?) - anyway, things to clip into. Above all, the lovely 4b crack with super nut placements - cream of the routes - that we used to climb in the dark 40 years ago because climbing was strictly forbidden then is now a pincushion. God knows whether I'd trust the protection though: look at the boulder opposite the crag, where they've been practising with their Black and Decker: loads of holes where something has been drilled & ain't there no more!
I think this is a disgrace. A difficult natural crag has been defaced to no apparent benefit (didn't see any chalk to suggest it's being climbed).
