Crag features

A nice little boulder nestled on the bank below an old windmill at the top of Windmill Hill, just outside of Woodhouse Eaves. Good landings and relatively clean rock but could benefit from a brush now and again. Several easy rambles and a couple of mid grade problems prepare you for the main attractions: Four problems centered around the appealing arete.                                                        



Approach notes

Windmill Hill is situated just outside the village of Woodhouse Eaves. It can easily be approached from either J22 or J23 of the M1.

From J22; Follow the A511 towards Coalville. At the first roundabout take the B591 signposted for Copt Oak. At Copt Oak continue along the B591 and take the second right for Woodhouse Eaves. As you descend from Beacon Hill into Woodhouse Eaves the carpark is on the right just before the houses.

From J23; Follow the A512 into Loughborough. At the first set of traffic lights turn right on to Breakback Road which is followed to Woodhouse Eaves. At the T junction turn right onto Beacon Road and the car park is on your left.

Follow the footpath across the field and into the woods. Just after the gate/style follow a path leftwards up the hill. The crag is down the slope to your left as you approach the old windmill base at the top of the hill.
