Mount Edgcumbe Rocks

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

A small outcrop on Tunbridge Wells Common, close to Wellington Rocks. A major tree clearance took place here in the mid 90s and has made climbing possible. Very small, both in size and height (up to 5m), but only 10 minutes walk from the train station. Rock can be variable in quality - mostly soft and sandy (like the other crags, really), but some solid sections which have been developed.

As with all Southern Sandstone, no leading - soloing or toproping only. If the latter then extend the belay over the crag edge - it saves your rope and the rock. The problems are mostly boulder problems anyway.
