Rose Corner, Ippikins Rock © caradoc
Reaching a maximum height of 20m this outcrop provides a small concentration of generally steep routes which are really only of interest to local climbers. The pegs and threads should be regarded as suspect and need replacing. There are three separate areas:- Below the viewpoint/tarmaced lay-by Ivy Groove is a good Diff and Major's Wall a short sharp E1, through the gate in front of the pub are Little Job HS and the more challenging Odd Job VS, between these is the main wall where Dead Good HVS and Live Evil E3 are the most popular harder climbs. There is some loose rock from time to time.
Approach via the B4371 from Much Wenlock. Parking is available in three individual lay-bys above the crag. The main wall is accessed from the lay-by just before the Wenlock Edge Inn. There is parking for several cars on the short track leading to the field above the crag. The pub cark park is currently blocked off and there are plans to build on it. Access to the top of the main wall is along the cliff top through the trees and not over the fence. The first five routes on Job Buttress can be climbed by agreement with the National Trust and are worth a visit despite the sign on the stile saying no climbing. Walk down the field above the main wall and through the gate in front of the pub to find this area. Climbing on Black Wall is restricted as part of the current access agreement. If you are up for adventure some routes have been climbed on the other side of the road opposite the Major's wall area. You will need a machete, strong trousers, a hard hat and a sense of adventure to enjoy them.
