Under Rockes

Southern Sandstone

User attention

We are temporarily changing the advice in the code of practice regarding climbing in wet or damp conditions for this winter. Only climb on properly dry rock – this will usually take multiple days of dry weather in a row before a visit, and even then nothing is guaranteed. If you are unsure, leave climbing for another day. It might be frustrating to travel only to find the crag isn’t in condition, but we all need to have the long term sustainability of the crags in mind. Once holds are snapped or damaged, they cannot be replaced. from 02/12/2020

Pleasant, secluded outcrop containing a steep wall with a few good, hard routes.

Crag information

Importance: Local CRoW Land: No
Ownership: Private No. of Routes: 50
Within National Park: No Year Developed: 1960
Grid Reference: TQ556264

There have been access problems in 2021 due to parking and litter, please park well away from the house and remove all litter from the crag and path leading to it.

Parking and Approach

The outcrop is on private land and access is sensitive. An unadopted footpath runs from a point 20m south from the junction with Fir Toll Road and Horleigh Green Road starting opposite a house called Twitts Ghyll. Do not park your car on the land opposite Twitts Ghyll and not within 200m of the house. There is room for a few cars 250m south of Twitts Ghyll at the junction with Dennis Lane. If this is full, please park elsewhere and walk in or consider climbing elsewhere.
