Crag features

A tiny outcrop of compact rock, featuring some good sport routes including an excellent 6c

Many bouldering problems have now been added to this crag.

Topo can be found here:

Trad routes can be overtaken with brambles and other vegetation. Take secateurs and gardening gloves if you have a particular route in mind.

Approach notes

Turn off the main road in Flax Bourton onto Bourton Combe Road, park at the end. Follow a track on the right, down into the combe for about half a mile. The crag is on the left above the path, but quite well hidden by trees.

No topo, but you can download a PDF of the problems with descriptions here : (Although the access description in the PDF is a bit misleading, better to use the one here on UKC)

Is there a topo for the bouldering?

Nice enough for a quick trip out from Bristol. Directions are also bit off, stay on the main path to the right from car parking, past the stone wall, past the crossroads with another path, underneath a big dead tree which has fallen across the path, then up a rubble slope on the left. Beware snapping holds and loose stuff up top.

Neat little crag.

great little place, like a mini goblin coombe. Definitely want to come back with a rope for the E1 and sport routes. Too damn cold/snowy for anything other than the Severe today though.

Great little crag. There is an endless amount of link-ups being made.
