Crag features

Micro-Crag near Croscombe Valley Crags in Titcome Wood below Yew Tree Woods on OS maps.It has an unusual name due to it's proximity to Nancy Camel's Hole only a few metres away.Roughly 7 metres high and steep it now has several routes.On the down-side it is a bit too close to the sewage treatment plant by the A371 which can be quite smelly at times.

Approach notes

Access should not be a problem as the crag is on a public footpath. There is parking for a couple of cars in a lay-by just up the road from the parking space for the Puddingstone Cliff. Walk up the road a 100 metres and on a right angled left hand bend a public footpath disappears down into the woods on the right. The crag is 50 metres down this path.

Guidebooks

The line of Hoofin has now been established as an indepedent route left of Bactrian,apologies to Marti Hallet

Marti Hallet added a route called "Hoofin" which actually follows the correct line of "Bactrian"(the line on the topo is incorrect).As a consequence "Hoofin" has been deleted.

Yes it is steeper than it looks.

Steeper and more substantial than first appearances suggest.
