Restricted Access

The main Woodwell crag is unrestricted. The National Trust have recently joined in partnership with the BMC to reinstate access to three bouldering areas on Woodwell O'ert Road on a trial basis: Wolf Buttress, Troll Buttress and Cave Buttress. Climbers are welcome to come and enjoy the bouldering on the three designated areas but please observe the following conditions when visiting: 1. For ecological reasons, bouldering is only permitted on the three designated areas. Climbers should not proceed past Cave Buttress - this will be marked with a sign. 2. Dogs are not allowed. 3. Climbers must not enter the field directly below the rock.

(Sit start) A line which ascends the ramp to the big jug on the lip, then climbs the narrow shallow groove between Turbulence and Angel Deelite.
