Roche Rock


Unique rock - not granite but schorl, composed of quartz and tourmaline, and possessing the most extraordinary friction. A good selection of routes across the mid-grades from diffs up to a desperate E4 6b roof crack.

Parking and Approach

The sports/social club car park is probably the best place to park having plenty of space. Access is from the back of the car park, past the club building, right through the gate and follow the hedgerow left. Cut through the obvious opening and head towards the rock. Fight through the ferns on the relatively obvious but muddy paths.
