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.

Leave Hodge Close carpark by way of the track behind a locked gate on the left. This heads down towards a working quarry. Track behinds to the right and goes downhill. On the left is the hole in the ground/quarry known as The Works! Use the rope & ladder to carefully access the floor of the quarry.
Please do not park in front of the gate leading down to the quarry. This is private land and access is required by the quarry owner. Park 20 metres away in the main Hodge Close parking area.
