Duck Stones


Faces west and catches any weather going. Shady in the morning, gets afternoon and evening sun. Mainly consists of easier leading and bouldering. The odd harder route and problem. Can be combined with other Chew crags on the skyline to make a visit worthwhile.

Parking and Approach

From Dovestones Reservoir car park (pay and display - strictly policed) follow the track round the right hand side of the reservoir, past the sailing club hut until a bridge is reached. Duck Stones proper is the collection of tors and small crags on the skyline directly up the hillside across from the bridge, just to the right of the dry stone wall higher up the hill. To get there, take a deep breath and follow the path directly up the hill between the 2 cloughs, until it meets the dry stone wall which can be followed to the Duck Stones, which lies 50 yards to the right of the dry stone wall, just below the skyline. Approx 25 minutes.
