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.

A sandstone crag offering a variety of very impressive lines on rock that is never beyond suspicion. Recent new routes have been led although most climbers will use a toprope. There is plenty of bouldering and the crag is therefore reasonably popular with locals. Reaches a maximum height of 45m.The recommended routes include Red Square E1, Bruce Factor E3, Berlin Wall E7, My Piano E8, The Nuance E5, Gathering Sun E8, Marlene E4, Full Sun E6 and Leaf Storm E6.
There is also a new guidebook (2007) out for Nesscliffe alone, titled Nesscliffe.
There is a new online bouldering guide at shropshirebouldering.co.uk.
Lies just above the A5 at the village of Nessliffe. The guidebook description says to approach via the footpath opposite The Old Three Pigeons pub. This is fine, but there is no longer any parking there. A good approach is from the parking about 1/2 a mile(ish) up the lane directly opposite the pub. Drive past the school and the parking is about 200yds on your right.
