Anston Stones Wood

Climbs 131 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 111m a.s.l – Faces NE

Crag features
An excellent bouldering venue which is a must visit if in the area. The magnesium limestone offers steep finger exercises in a wooded valley. The 2012 guide has opened up the bouldering but access is still a sensitive issue and as always take your litter away.

Most of the grades are taken from the bouldering guide, some are said to be a little soft but they are not too far out so get on them and grade vote here so they can more calibrated any future guide for the area.

Approach notes
Adjacent to the A57 Sheffield to Worksop road 1km SE of South Anston. Ample parking available.
