Crag features

A steep magnesian limestone crag which is about 8m high but developed as a bouldering venue with problems finishing at around 4 - 5m. A good wet weather venue and really only limited to mid grade or harder problems though easier problems are a possibility. There is also a large boulder just off the dismantled rail track approach which has some good warm up problems and a good steep roof. Lots of stuff unrecorded as there’s a lot of rock here. 

Be aware there is a Ram doing the rounds by the main wall.

Avoid climbing here when the weather can’t make its mind up between dry and humid as the nature of the holds tend to come loose then go back to normal after consistent good weather. Woolly Mammoth is a good example of a problem that has been broken because of this.

Take some glue if you can and do some repair work as there is quite a few loose holds.

Please stay off climbs that look/feel like they are going to break alot of loose holds noticed on previous visits would be a shame for these problems to become permanently broken it's just not worth it. Stay off until someone repairs please and add to the comments sections of climbs to keep people updated. As good as any venue on the maglime for a circuit of font 7s let's try keep it that way.

Approach notes

At lot of construction has been going on as late the public footpath appears to have gone, so best to use the farmers field but use appropriately. The field which you cross over before dropping down to the main wall climbers where asked not to use it recently. Best option is to stick out of sight as best as possible and keep a low profile when there.


Anyone who can add or knows of other options for the approach please add to the comment section. Thanks.

Please clean chalk off the holds when you leave. Recently there have been climbs with an overabundance of chalk left on them which collects moisture and dirty, making them nasty to hold. Respect the rock. Thank you...
