Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.
At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.
We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

A collection of good quality gritstone boulders hidden in the pine trees below the Doll Tor stone circle. Needs a couple of dry days or a good breeze to be at its best. Take an open mind and a soft brush to clean off the pine needles. Some of the problems are as good as any in the local area.
Good topo here.
Access via the Andle Stone and Doll Tor stone circle then head straight down through the woods on a vague path. Be discrete as this is a new venue and the access situation is unknown. Please, please take great care accessing and carrying pads in. The stone wall by the layby has been rebuilt twice this year, as well as the one by the stone circle gateway. Not damaged by climbers but don't want this to become an issue. The Slug block is in full view of the houses below so keep a very low profile if you visit here.

|Most problems need a real clean, but still worth an explore if you have the time.|

|Good effort Marc for all the cleaning and documenting. A good circuit of stuff, worth a visit for any lovers of Birchover grit. Hopefully it will see enough traffic to keep the moss at bay.|
