Crag features

Two weird limestone blocks in a pleasant woodland setting, with some good middle grade climbs on cracks and open walls.

Approach notes

The crag has a history of access problems, with the landowner having taken such measures as smearing the rock with grease and installing bat boxes to discourage climbing in the past. The situation remains delicate, so please behave responsibly and try to minimise impact on the crag and surroundings.

Someone's graffitied the Senitel block and the rock face face across from Humbug. Lord Elgin getting aggressive and angsty???

Picked up light blue ladies jacket that some people left on Saturday the 9th of August at the Gellet Block. I think the people were German/Austrian. Send me a message if its yours!
