The Outwoods Crag is a north-facing woodland outcrop of natural rock (weathered Precambrian slate agglomerate) which is slow to dry. It has several lower grade routes which make it a good crag for beginners although some of the problems are not without interest. The crag is desperately greasy on a wet winter day but catches the sun through the trees very late on a summer evening. The routes may need a scrub the first visits after Winter, so take a brush.
Topo available at Leicestershire Bouldering.
The quickest approach is along the track through the wood which starts on the Nanpantan/Woodhouse Eaves road near Charnwood Hall. The crag is just beside the track where the path leaves the Outwoods.
