Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.
At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.
We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

At the Eastern end of Burrator Resevoir is Norsworthy Bridge and a parking area. From here head South Eastish along a track, passing the ruins of a building on the right, until the track opens out and a paths leads on across a couple of field. On the hillside directly in front of you will a fine smattering of boulders, the largest of which is at the top of the hill and called Cuckoo Rock.
