Emma on the unfairly named problem called 'Warm Up' on Deforestation Boulder © Daimon Beail

Crag features

A super and slightly disjointed venue with a large selection of boulder problems and micro routes along the valley edge. The lower Cheesewring Rock is the largest of the rocks here and has a number longer climbs around its circumference. 

Bolts have been placed illegally without the agreement of the Tunbridge Wells Common Conservators (TWCC). In consultation with the BMC, the TWCC have accepted that the bolts should remain on the Cheesewring Rock. The bolts are thought to be safe but climbers should use the bolts at their own risk. It is suggested that the bolts are linked using a length of rope as a backup.

NO LEADING - soloing or top roping only, and if the latter then extend the belay over the crag edge.

Approach notes

The crag lies immediately W of St Pauls Church on Rusthall Common, 1km W of Tunbrige Wells. From the A264 Tun.Wells-E Grinstead rd follow the white finger-post directing towards the footpath for Happy Valley.

Quite a lot of rubbish at the crag (not from climbers) atm - anyone visiting it would be great to bring a small rubbish bag and take some of it away. Also watch out for very eroded problems - if the sandy core of the rock is exposed, don't climb on it and report it to https://www.facebook.com/SouthernSandstoneClimbs

Very nice quiet spot for low-mid grade bouldering on a sunny day. Red Snapper at Font 6a is definitely worth a go.

Watch out for the wasp nest on the the right side of routes 1-3
