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.

Wilderness is home to a wide variety of climbs, including a few of the most breathtaking hard routes on Moorland grit. If you like slabs, walls, cracks, arêtes (especially arêtes) or chimneys you will find something here to tickle your fancy.
It's best to give the crag a week to dry after prolonged rain, maybe a few days after showers. Some of the faces (notably the harder lines) are really quite clean, whilst the hidden corners are fascinating alien worlds of strange life. The crag faces north and as such only gets the summer sun either very early or late afternoon and evening. The routes can be gritty and, without being brushed beforehand, may well be harder than the given grades.
Follow the tarmac road from Dovestones Reservoir to its end at Chew Reservoir. Contour south and west until you're above the rocks and drop down.
