Crag features

A large free standing boulder on the Western end of Thrunton Woods and marked on 1:25 000 OS map.

This is a great alternative location for Spring and Summer evening sessions in an open, yet private spot with flat and easily padded out landings.

The rock is of good quality and more traffic will only improve it. The pockets (shot holes) are a little sandy but have been stabilised.

Approach notes

The best approach is from Rough Castles, just off the A697 Morpeth-Wooler road. Turn left off the main road half a mile North of the crossroads with the B6341 at a bend signposted to Thrunton Wood. Park about 200m from the junction where a forestry road leaves on the left. Walk along the forest road until you reach the pylons. Pass beneath them then turn right immediately, walking 50m along the tree-line at the edge of their clearing, until you notice an obvious gap in the trees. Walk through here (stooping beneath 2-3 pine trees) and emerge into a clearing. Following the clearing up the hill (and through plenty of bracken) you'll come to the Kail Stone. Slightly further up the hill is another minor crag.
