Crag features

A little amphitheatre facing the fork of roads opposite the pub in the tiny village of Hoath Corner. Several buttresses about 6m high, broken up by some fine (and not-so-fine) cracks. The rock quality is extremely variable: some is very solid, some is treacherously loose, most is in need of a clean. Parts of the top of the crag have an unpleasant cap of mud - soloists be warned!

As with all Southern Sandstone, top-roping and soloing/bouldering are the only accepted methods of ascent. Tree belays are fairly plentiful here but can be tricky to set up due to the mud. Make sure you extend the anchor so no moving rope is in contact with the rock.

The pub (the Rock Inn) is rather good and has beer from local brewer Larkins.

Approach notes

The land is private but climbers appear to be tolerated - although the fairly public setting could lead to some strange stares from locals.

It is best to park at the pub. The rocks are best accessed from the right-hand fork in the road by scrabbling through some trees to reach a descent leading to the left-hand side of the crag.
