Access issues inherited from Harrison's Rocks

Harrison's Rocks is owned by climbers and is managed on their behalf by the British Mountaineering Council with funding from the English Sports Council. Please leave a donation at the car park charity box. If approaching forma the train station, do not trespass the private property to get to zig-zag wall, instead follow the path to the left.

Ethic inherited from Harrison's Rocks

The Sandstone is very soft -- leading is not allowed. Most climbs are top-roped, and ropes should be extended over the edge and set up in a way such as to minimize the wear on the rock. Top-out and down-climb is preferred to lowering. Abseiling is, also, forbidden.

Goats Head Soup

Start just left of the right edge of the front wall, and climb onto a small pedestal, then hand traverse leftwards to a short crack and finish up it.

Similar to Monkey's Bow, but traverse left along the next break up.

Start just left of the right edge of the front wall, and clamber up to stand on a small pedestal, then continue straight up the wall.

Step off the boulder, traverse in, then climb up the scooped wall a couple meters left of the gully.

Start as per "Moonlight Arete", but climb the broad arete to the right of it, instead.

Start in the passage, under a boulder, facing outwards. Bridge up to some ledges, move forwards to the mouth of the passage, then up via a stump until backed against the boulder. Use a hold on the lip to turn-around and pull over.

The vegetated groove just right of the passage.
