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.

The only pinnacle of any height in Leicestershire; probably the best bouldering in the whole county.
Park at the Charley Road crossroads (GPS Coordinates) and walk down Abbey Road sticking to the pedestrian zone on the right hand side of the road. At the junction with Oaks Road the pedestrian zone disappears so take care. Continue walking down Abbey Road until you see a gap in the wall on the left with a green gate (GPS Coordinates). Walk down this path for a short distance until you come across a stake indicating a public footpath (GPS Coordinates). Rather than go the direction it indicates, branch left down a path which runs parallel with a wall. Follow this for a few minutes to reach Oaks Pinnacle (GPS Coordinates).
To find the Isolated Pinnacle, follow a vague path running to the left below Clint's Cave and Flat Rock. The path runs uphill to the pinnacle (GPS Coordinates).
Oaks Pinnacle is within an area of CROW Act open countryside (hooray).
