Crag features

The highest point in Leicestershire and also the location of some good bouldering.

Approach notes

Park courtesously on Romans Crescent. Walk down Vercor Close and on to the footpath. Follow the path straight through two gates until you come to a warning sign about the quarry. Turn left here then turn right after the yellow painted boulder. Follow this path steeply up to the top of the hill and through another gate. The boulders are on the hillside south of the radio mast.
