Anston Stones Wood

East of Sheffield

An excellent bouldering venue which is a must visit if in the area. The magnesium limestone offers steep finger exercises in a wooded valley. The 2012 guide has opened up the bouldering but access is still a sensitive issue and as always take your litter away. Most of the grades are taken from the bouldering guide, some are said to be a little soft but they are not too far out so get on them and grade vote here so they can more calibrated any future guide for the area.

There are now acess issues with the apprentice wall and should not be climbed due to being on railway land. I was told today that if caught climbing at this buttress you could face prosecution. 09/04/22

Construction workers have begun digging up the ground under Apprentice Wall to install a fence. They told me that because climbers had posted photos online of them by the train tracks, Network Rail did not want anyone climbing on this wall anymore.
