Please check the BMC RAD and www.southernsandstoneclimbs.co.uk before climbing at Eridge.
No chalk or chalk substitutes allowed. No brushing holds allowed.
Eridge is a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) and is owned by The Sussex Wildlife Trust. Please adhere to the sandstone code of practice and the eridge agreement before climbing here. Some areas are banned so please check the Rockfax App/BMC RAD before climbing here.
Height varying between 5 and 10m. Variable quality, from lichenous and friable to clean and solid. Like other soft sandstone crags, either solo or use topropes with extended slings. Do not let ropes rub the rock. The bouldering here can be fantastic in late summer, when the shady aspect means it is cooler (and quieter) than Bowles or Harrisons. Very reminiscent of Font, especially at the Northern (RH) end of the crag. Can get midgy.
Please note there are some areas where climbing is banned as part of the access agreement. Please respect the access conditions. If you see poor belaying methods please advise on the correct procedure. A carpet sample is very useful for cleaning your feet before you climb - this significantly reduces wear on the crag.
Climbing is allowed now on some parts of the crag - an access agreement has been negotiated with the owners - Sussex Wildlife Trust. There is a no chalk allowed rule in place. Please read the Crag Features above for limitations. The Rocks are a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest). Make sure you know where you are allowed to climb.
Take the A26 Tunbridge Wells-Crowborough rd; 4km S of Tunbridge Wells, Pass through Eridge and turn R onto a narrow lane by Eridge church. Drive for 200m past a small row of houses to a car park right next to the first main buttress.
