Crag features

A mixture of natural and quarried sandstone spread over several outcrops. The outcrops generally do not exceed around 40-50ft in hight with routes ranging from 3a to 6b and provide a number of interesting top rope and boldering problems including:

The nebuliser 6a* (church quarry area)

Sugar bullets 5a* (sugar lump area)

Ceaser's palace 5a** (middle rock area)

There exists the possibility of new route development at all grades!

Please note the main quarries area should be treated with suspicion due to the questionable nature of the sandstone and a recent rockslide just beyond the main hole.

Approach notes

Approach via the A49 into Preston Brockhurst and turn at the signpost for Clive and Yorton, turn left at the sign for 'Corbet wood picnic area'. All of the outcrops and quarries can then be reached in a few minutes from the car park. Inline with current access agreements organised groups should not use Grinshill.

Access Advice

Part of the site is owned y the Hardwicke Estate, and part by Shropshire County Council. In order to protect the existing delicate arrangement for the future, there are a number of requests: 1) Please do not park in Clive village. Use instead the Corbet Woods carpark. 2) No organised groups. 3) Small groups of climbers only please (up to half a dozen). 4) Take all your litter home, and any other litter that you may find.

Recent find for me. Impressed with some of the pocketed walls and potential bouldering. Dries quickly - definitely on my visit list again.
