Crag features

A railway cutting that served The Lever Brothers soap factory in Port Sunlight. It is now a cycle path. Easy access. Flat landings. 4 to 5m high. No topping out yet. Touch the top in control and downclimb / jump onto your mat. Dries quickly. Sheltered. South facing.  Quiet despite being under a main road!

This is recently developed so there will be some further brushing, dirt and some loose holds - however, there is  good climbing here the more visits the better it will get.

About 55 straight up problems f3+ to f6b so far. Routes are independent and do not share holds with adjacent routes. A whopping big traverse and still growing - UK tech 5c. 

The rock is sandstone so like all of Cheshire / Merseyside sandstone - use SOFT BRUSHES ONLY please.

To identify the start - Bridgit is the obvious open corner using the bridge stonework. Routes described RIGHT to LEFT.

Approach notes

Lots of parking at Junction of Port Causeway and Thermal Road. Take the cycle track towards Port Sunlight down and back under the road. Walk for a few hundred metres under a second bridge. It is the obvious, clean wall on the right. Currently 60m of about 100m developed as of writing. 

Access also from Port Sunlight Station. Turn right out of the station entrance and  head towards the factory. Take the path rightward and follow the cycle track for 700m? The crag is on the left.
