At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

Home of Forked Lightning Crack (E3 5c), the best crack on grit? Many high quality climbs on good rock. South-West Facing sun trap, good in winter after a few days sun.
You can also get to the rocks from walking through the woods from bank foot - emerge from behind the houses at the bottom of the hill. Just follow the windy path up and it runs below the right hand outcrop on the main quarry.
