Jago sticking to the rules on The Lowest Break © Dave Musgrove

Crag features

A little boulder field in an open meadow near the mighty Eavestone. First mentioned in Wild Bouldering (1997). Pleasant and good for beginners.

Conditions and Aspect: Sheltered in a dry valley and mostly west facing. No tree cover, so very little seepage.

Routes and bouldering: Good, mostly lower grade bouldering.

Approach notes

As for Eavestone. Walk down the road and cross the fence at a makeshift stile just before the road bends uphill.

Restricted Access

The boulders are not on Open Access land and it's unclear if access for climbing is tolerated or not. In early 2021 new signs indicating there is no right of way were erected. If you do visit, keep a very low profile, follow a strict leave no trace ethic, be polite to anyone you meet and leave if asked to.

Nice sunny spot for autumn or spring afternoons. Ideal for a family picnic. Lots of easyish problems with mostly good soft landings. Never heard of any access problems and the presence of the stile and footpath through the field suggests access is OK.
