Becca Banks Crag © PeterDobbs

Crag features

* bolted sport routes starting to be placed on some routes *

A 100m long quarried wall of magnesian limestone, up to 10m high: Main features include a square cut corner in the first bay, which includes several excellent face climbs. This is followed by an undercut prow with some testing problems. The wall then continues with numerous problems to half height/routes to the top (beware: poor exits are common - bring some belay slings). Finally, a small overhanging bay at the northern end of the crag provides a wet weather bouldering venue. No details are given in the Limestone guide but the routes are obvious. A few pegs/threads exist but mostly gear is in the pocketed upper wall (friends) and the few cracks. Rock is generally sound but a brush is required as this is not the most frequented crag in the world! [David Gluck]

Listed climbs from left to right.

13/11/2020 - Went to the crag for a bouldering session to find numerous 'No climbing - offenders will be prosecuted' signs have now been installed and some of the bolts have been hammered flat. Such a shame as I looks like a cracking spot.

 

 

 

 

Approach notes

Park in village not on Becca Lane. Up Becca Lane (opposite Arabian Horse) to woods where a path is followed to the crag - 5 minutes.

(I went there the other day and the landowner came and payed us a "nice" little visit said if we fell he would get sued and kicked us off the crag!)

Access Banned

The landowner has contacted the BMC to make clear that they do not allow public access onto the land the crag is located on.
