A little perma dry venue that is great for locals. Includes a plethora of quite good individual lines and traverses, aswell as some linkups to keep you busy. Grades range from 6A to 7C+ currently, however there are some linkups that have not been done that could be harder than 7C+. This crag is probably only worth a visit if you are climbing around 6C or so.
This craglet is part of Grinshill tucked away behind a hill on part of a quarry. While this should be part of the Grinshill Ukc, the moderator there is likley a little hesitant to add it due to the slightly sketchy nature of the crag. There is a large pillar and a large bolt in the crag that aim to keep the overhung roof up. One or two of the holds have a concerning wobble to them, although almost all the climbing takes part on solid rock. As the Shropshire Bouldering website says: "Enter at your own risk!".
The problems at this crag were originally given some unoffical names for a very short while, however Ed Booth who is one of crags developers has provided some official names to use.
Topos and other information about this crag can be found online on the Shropshire Bouldering wesbite: https://shropshirebouldering.co.uk/crags/grinshill/the_dug_out
Some of the best problems here include:
Douglass - 7B
A Mon With A Spade - 7A
A Shropshire Mon - 7A+
From the online Shropshire guide: "From the Corbett Wood car park follow the main forest trail below the car park. pass the entrance to the White Tower quarry then head up the scree up the hillside on the right."
There are bats nesting in the far back of the cave and in a crack to the right of the crag, so it may be wise to not visit the crag currently. If you still visit, keep noise to a minimum and do not visit at night when the bats are out and awake.
