Approach notes

Overlooks the football fields adjacent to Quarry Lane in South Shields, on the edge of the Cleadon Hills

A bit complicated to find. Heading E on the A194 to S Shieds, turn right onto John Reid road (A1300). Turn right at the roundabout with a clock in the middle and after 100 mtrs turn left immedaitely before the trees and go up the minor road with Cleadon Park on the right. After the school the crag will be seen on the right. Park at the houses 1m from the crag.

Good bouldering, near to Newcastle and 25m from the road. Well worth a visit if in the area and at a loose end, especially if you also visit The Cove.

The name of the crag is actually Cleadon Quarry and is a extremely useful and free traing wall.

Underrated. It has a good bouldering section on the main wall. It does offer short climbs - a good fence at the top to tie in. Problem with vegetation underfoot and on top plus litter doesn't make it immediately appealing! I'll follow up with some pics.
