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.
Rocktype Sandstone (hard)

Not very high, excellent for high balls and hard bouldering on excellent fine-grained sandstone which might need a soft brush early in the year. There is a fine circuit of easier problems, while the classic problems are often high.
2 Miles east of Housteads on unmettaled road which heads North off the Military road and goes to Sewingshieds Farm.
Park by a copse of trees just past the farm on the left (usually a derelict land rover there). You might need to ask for permission and might be charged £2 for using the road, and in this case you can park carefully offroad down further down the rough track. The alternative is to park on the minor road further East of the farm track.
