Climbing and Bouldering UK

New Laund

climbing informationDescription: Delightful 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.

Some photos can be seen here.
