Crag features

Old slate quarry. Best routes: "Sorcerer" E1 5b***, "Sorceress"E6 6b*** ( Old aid route, some bolts). [Al Smith] Definitely Not E2 5b * and Saucy E3 5c ** also good. Sorceress apparently de-bolted.

Approach notes

Forest Rock is in the centre of Woodhouse Eaves by "The Forest Rock", Public House.. which is now converted to something else [06/06]. Park in old car park just past the war memorial.

I visited the crag a couple of times recently. It's in great condition, and there's a nice grassy landing for the majority of routes outside the cave. The bolts remain intact for the E5 and E6 that come out the cave, but the hangers have been removed!

Visited the other day, some guy was boasting of chopping bolts. all the same, great small crag on a sunny day if your local.

Cool little crag in an unusual village setting. Despite looking green all the main routes are in fine condition in dry weather and the good sharp little holds are all clean. An evening leading the mid-grade routes (all good - Sorceror is notably substantial for a small crag) followed by refreshments in the pleasant Pear Tree Inn should put a smile on one's face.
