Home to many unique and much loved crags, (many of which have been proving grounds for some of the UK’s top climbers) and given its proximity to so many people in the south east the crags of this area are incredibly popular and for good reason.

However given the very soft nature of the rock, anyone climbing on these crags needs to be aware of a number of different things to ensure a great day out on the rock without damaging the routes.

This booklet tells you everything you need to know for a great day out whilst looking after the rock for current and future generations.

The Southern Sandstone Code of Practice is available as a download or hard copy from local walls or through the BMC Shop

RAD is community led and your comments help keep it up to date so don’t be afraid to add any relevant information after a crag visit which might be useful for other visitors – anything from conditions on the crag, favourite routes or reports of rockfall/other recent changes to the crag are all useful for other climbers visiting.
