Tent Hill Rocks

Southern Sandstone

A small outcrop about 5 metres high, composed of rock that is mainly soft, sandy and generally quite poor. As with all Southern Sandstone, top-roping and bouldering/soloing are the only acceptable methods of ascent. Remember to extend anchors so that no moving rope comes into contact with the rock. Belays are a bit tricky to set up here as trees are not always conveniently placed - bring a lot of slings, an extra static rope, or a crashpad.

Parking and Approach

Presumably on private land, but efforts to confirm ownership have been unsuccessful. No reported access problems to date. Park near Forge Cottages on the road SW from the village of Penshurst, 3 miles west of Battle. Take care not to block up drives/gates/anything else important. Follow the '1066 Walk' footpath heading east from the road. After a couple of dog-legs to get past houses you will find yourself heading south-east across fields. After about 600m there is a footbridge - turn left just past the top of the steps after this, following a track. Follow this for about 1km until you reach overhead wires - the crag is just uphill on the right from here.
