Rothley © benji

Crag features

A superb bouldering location. The routes, other than Rothley Crack, are poorly protected (if at all).

Approach notes

On the Scots Gap - Rothbury road, about 2km north of Scots Gap. The road passes the crag. Park in the large layby at the crossroads further north. DO NOT park on the roadside by the crag.

Agree with the previous poster 100%. Also some the odd grading anomally (it is the County after all) in places and forget the 'limited parking in a shallow layby' at the far end it's asking to get your car clipped. Be wary of the boggy ground on the standard approach, otherwise enjoy!

Guide book is spot on about two things; the bracken and the landings. In summer this has shoulder high bracken growing next to a lot of the problems so would be more of a winter venue. Also like Shaftoe it seems people only climb on a few areas so most of the place is very dirty and needs more traffic. With that in mind think about taking a soft brush.
