The Long Side and Short Side are both CLOSED until further notice. DO NOT CLIMB.
To reach the Long Side from the school’s main gates on Mountain Road, follow the signs to the Centennial Theatre complex and take the road that leads down to the left of the theatre to the lower playing fields — and the crag.
There is NO FOOT ACCESS TO THE CLIFF TOP. You need to be able to lead on trad gear to access many top anchors, though a few pull-cords are provided to pull your rope through the anchors for top-roping - these generally also give access to adjacent routes from the same anchor. Fixed chains may be used to traverse with care from the top of Graveyard Groove to the top of Sneakeasy.
All routes have nearby anchors for abseiling or lowering, These may be large steel rings, rap anchors, chains with D-shackles, or just chains.
