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.

Sept 2019. The landowner has stated that climbing is NOT permitted.
This is a special place which holds spiritual significance for a wide variety of individuals and groups. Park considerately at the church (especially on a Sunday), be discrete as the crag is on private land and please be respectful of the environment and anyone that you meet here.
Walk through the churchyard and a kissing gate. If the ferns are down, follow the path below the crags towards the chapel. The crags you pass here hold some routes and some bouldering. Above and beyond the chapel is a small buttress which holds some short routes and bouldering. Beyond this is what looks like a big vegetated lump; the main crag. Contour the slope to reach the base of the main crag.
In the summer, when the ferns have turned the aforementioned approach into an epic battle, turn right at the kissing gate and walk along the top of the crags.
There might be a Barn Owl living in the large crack of Minny-Digger.
In previous years, birds of prey have nested above the bouldering cave.
