Crag features

Pretty short bouldering problems, generally good landings. At present both Castle Crag and Soar crag are climbable, Memorial crag will need a machete for access and the landing is very poor. There are a few broken bottles scattered round the crag so be careful.

Details of the crag can be found here:

Approach notes

Guidebooks

June 2015 - Only Castle crag was possible to climb, Sonar & Memorial are both hugely over grown. Castle may be open but the term "polished" does not it justice its pratically mirror finish in mot places.
