Forest Rock

East Midlands

A disused slate quarry with trad, sport and bouldering on its steep and technical faces. As much of the crag overhangs considerably it can be a good option for those seeking dry rock in bad weather.

Crag information
Climbing Area: Midlands Rock Type: Slate
Importance: Local CRoW Land: No
Ownership: Unknown No. of Routes: 50
Within National Park: No Year Developed:
Grid Reference: SK5315014128

Access to the crag is sensitive given that is is very close to nearby houses - residents have in the past confronted climbers and asked them to leave.

Please make a particular effort to be quiet at this crag (especially avoiding shouting and bad language), take all litter home with you and don't use the crag or it's surrounds as a toilet. Keeping a low profile here is a good idea to help develop good realtionships with local residents and avoid access issues in the future.

Two useful links for further info are the online version of the Cicerone Leicestershire Climbs guidebook and the new Leicestershire Climbs website.

Parking and Approach

Forest Rock is in the centre of Woodhouse Eaves. Park in the old car park just past the war memorial. 

Group Advice

Unsuitable - groups are likely to attract unwanted attention here due to numbers and noise.
