High up at Rob's Rocks © Tris

Crag features

This is a first-rate place to experience the wilderness and a good venue for the afternoon soloist. A collection of delightfully isolated south-facing buttresses close to the top of Chew Brook. Despite the fact that the routes have their share of difficulty, this is a fine place to begin climbing outdoors. The wealth of bouldering along the skyline towards Duck Stones adds to its cachet. Every climber who has gone onto greater things has cut their teeth at Rob's.

Approach notes

Park at the Dovestones Reservoir and follow the tarmac service road uphill for 40 mins.

Excellent crag. Well worth the walk up the path. Lots of easier grade routes, some harder problems, plenty to suit all abilities. Take a walk some four hundred feet further along the edge for more routes/problems. The crag tends to dry fast and catches the sun nicely. Great crag for beginners or for the more experienced an evenings solo of the whole crag.
