The Pondorosa Boulder, Crookesmoor © Mutl3y

Crag features

A fun, but small, artificial outdoor boulder produced by Bendcrete in 1998/9 (?) The surface aims to be a cross between gritstone and limestone. Good for a quick hit when you don't have time to head to the Peak. 

All problems start from sitting in order to make the most of the boulders' limited stature. Getting off the ground tends to be the hardest move of the problems and they can all be climbed from standing at lower grades.

Approach notes

Park on Oxford Street and head into the park. The boulder is on the hill above the grass pitch.
