Restricted Access

The bouldering at Anston Stones Wood all takes place on land owned by Anston Parish Council. To preserve the good relationship that climbers have with the Parish Council, The British Mountaineering Council have agreed the following guidelines which we ask all climbers to adhere to:

  • Stick to existing footpaths and firm ground, avoid trampling on vegetation
  • Pick up any litter you come across
  • Stay off the railway line
  • Climb only on areas that have already been developed (i.e. Woody’s Rock, the Wave area, Rocky Valley, Hidden Wall, Apprentice Wall, Dukes Wall, Through Post, and Frodo buttress.)

In addition to the above, avoid topping out where possible.

Rockfax Description
From sitting at the prominent undercut flake, reach the slot above and head up and slightly left at this grade to finish. A stricter finish up and slightly right via edges and a small pocket, avoiding the big holds on the left, is worthwhile at around f6C+. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
From a good undercut in the flake up to a slot type hold. The finish is up and slightly left of the undercut, via another pocket taken as a sidepull. Moving any further leftwards takes you into Ebola Buttress Right Wall and is easier than 6B.

βeta: Updated the problem description. Not really sure where the "up and right" thing came from, perhaps just to stop people traversing all the way into Ebola Buttress Right, but that's not correct at all for the original 6Bish version.

βeta: This route finishes up and right of the undercut. Finishing left goes into the f5 warm-up and is easier than 6B.
