Crag features

A short limestone crag, hidden from view, some lower grade bouldering problems, some highballs and five short lines, bolted at the top, presumably for top-roping school groups.also a  four chains at top of climbs in the pit, which now features glued holds at it's base.

Great place for taking small children(under 10's) and dogs(when farm animals aren't about).

Approach notes

There is a small car park at grid reference 505557 that will accomodate about 7 cars.Follow the path SW from the car park. When you reach a gate, do not go through it. but follow the fence up hill until you reach a stile. Cross this to arrive at the rocks.

Guidebooks

No guides found for this crag

Took a small group of university students here and spent a good half-day walking up and down some of the easier problems. A little muddy underfoot after a day of drizzle, but dry rock prevailed. We didn't find the topo too useful so just made up our own routes. Plenty of bouldering to be had regardless.

I made some enquiries from an instructor at Charterhouse Activity Centre and was told that as this was on CROW land climbing was not prohibited(but caving was Hee Hee!)
