At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.
Altitude 10m a.s.l
Ash hole is a small crag and cave which is shaded by trees and by it's northerly aspect. Seepage is minimal and there is the possiblity of climbing in the rain. Please avoid disturbing the homeowner at the top of the crag.
Update September 2019 : whilst the South Devon Guide notes that retrobolting of the older routes is a possibility, this is currently inadvisable. Please contact the local BMC representative for the full picture before considering any actions.
Park in the Upper Shoalstone car park Brixham. The crag is a 30 second expedition through trees to the south east of the car park entrance.
|TR stands for thread runner. Some are in situ and some require you to put the slingthrough the thread yourself.|

|I am a sport climber, so have no trad gear or trad experience. In the Guidebook it says for Wayne;
'A unique route, despite going nowhere. Climb steep rock passing 4 TRs. Lower off the last TR after climbing past it to touch the back wall with your feet!'
So I was wondering what is a TR and can it be climbed with sport gear (quickdraws) or does it require Nuts and Cams?
Other routes say they have TR's as protection but all have Trad grades, so the ones with TRs can they be sport climbed?|
