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.

Not a slab climb at all, of course.
Climb the crack and edge up the left side of the triangular slab.
Step onto the large foothold, then go directly up on slopers.
Start on the right edge of the wall, climb up to the horizontal break, then step left, and finish (more easily) up the crack.
Climb Celestial's Reach to the break, then move right and pull over the bulge to finish up a shallow groove.
