Emma on the unfairly named problem called 'Warm Up' on Deforestation Boulder © Daimon Beail

Crag features

Very small, both in size and height (up to 5m), but only 10 minutes walk from Bulls Hollow - so it can be an alternative. Rock can be variable in quality - mostly soft and sandy (like the other crags, really).

Approach notes

NO LEADING - soloing or toproping only, and if the latter then extend the belay over the crag edge - it saves your rope and the rock.
The crag lies immediately W of St Pauls Church on Rusthall Common, 1km W of Tunbrige Wells. From the A264 Tun.Wells-E Grinstead rd follow the white finger-post directing twds the footpath for Happy Valley.

Very nice quiet spot for low-mid grade bouldering on a sunny day. Red Snapper at Font 6a is definitely worth a go.

Had a great time there. Wish the top of the pinacle had a bolt on top. Its abit of a high ball solo.
