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.

Only able to climb when the level of the lake has dropped enough which is normally during mid summer. The Rock is very clean due to being submerged for 9 months of the year and the landings are good (with a mat). Also known as the Lost Boulders of Atlantis!
2020 UKC thread noted: "The consensus was that all the boulders are out when the level is 10m, though a lot of climbing is possible at say 11.7m."

|Got down there and though the Whale was still partially under water these boulders are worth a look as they are not far off the road and are mostly unavailable. Nice clean rock to|
