The BMC has owned the crag since 2001 and now manages the site for climbers and conservation with input from a group of keen local volunteers on the Harrisons Rocks Management Group (HRMG).

The rocks are situated 2¼ miles south-south-west of East Grinstead, and just to the south of a public bridleway that leads west from Stone Hill House. The crag is designated under the name of Stone Hill Rocks as a geological SSSI due to the unusual bedding formations. It is an important site for the study and interpretation of sedimentary structures in the upper Lower Tunbridge Wells Sand. Bolt belays have been placed at the top of the crag in an attempt to minimize any further erosion.

There is usually a bees nest in the trees at the top of Remote. The bees seem to be fairly tolerant of climbers nearby but it is worth being careful whilst climbing in this area when they are present and active.

Please do not run rigging ropes across the bridleway from trees on the other side as this will obstruct a Public Right of Way.

βeta: Can keep feet on bottom and I'm only 5'8 (although I do have gibbon like arms) , turns out I just needed more body tension

βeta: If your tall enough to be able to keep your feet on the bottom when going to the left crimp, feels soft for the grade (basically if your 6'2 and above). If you have to pop for the left crimp feels solid for the grade. As with most grading very subjective.
