Climbing and Bouldering UK
small bouldering crag - North West facing but sheltered. It gets
the sun from approximately 2pm onwards. Superb rough pocketed "Reef
Knoll Limestone" and generally good tops, although routes 4
and 5 have dubious rock at the top so traversing off is recommended
on these two routes. It is also recommended that you have a spotter
on most routes as a couple of other holds have snapped without warning.
Location: Between Dunsop Bridge
and Chipping. Easiest approach is via the minor road signposted "Bowland
Wild Boar Park" at Burnholme Bridge - 2 miles South of Dunsop
Bridge. The small crag can be seen from the road 1.5 kms along this
lane. Parking space for one car, so please park at the bridge if
there is already one car there. Access to the field must not be blocked.
Approach via the footpath. No access rights have been agreed so please
leave if asked to!

History: The lines shown here were
cleaned/developed by Tom Phillips, Dick Gerrish and Sharon Gerrish
on 19th Oct 2003. Further lines added by Tom Phillips and Bruce Jardine
on the 9th November 2003. Climbing has been done at this venue before
but no records exist. Now the routes have been cleaned up it
now makes a worthwhile venue.
