Hi,

I'm off to Worcester next weekend and may have a couple of hours spare. Is it worth nipping over to malvern for some easy soloing/bouldering? Any recommendations?

If you are coming from somewhere like Wiltshire with no rock, then maybe, if you are coming from somewhere with even a few crags, probably not.

It's a fine walk up to the top and along though with great views in all directions. 

I've led most of the routes at the main crag (or what used to be seen as the main crag anyway). I don't really know if there is much bouldering.

Southstone probably has much more bouldering potential (being steep pocketed limestone) but it probably very muddy and damp at this time of year. https://lightfromthenorth.blogspot.com/2010/12/southstone-rock-local-cliff-for-local.html

If you have boundless enthusiasm you could.  Far better to go for a walk/run up over for the top, because that is actually worthwhile

Coming from Leeds so not overly short on rock. Might go for a walk instead!

Do you mountain bike? It's a classic MTB destination as there are loads of bridleways all over the hills.

Not really, maybe one day! Thanks though!

I found a couple of pics in this old post from when I last went there, the text is quite disparaging of it as well as the pics not looking brilliant. https://lightfromthenorth.blogspot.com/2010/08/so-apologies-for-total-lack-of-blogging.html?m=1
