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.

Start 2m left of Passage Chimney, climb straight up to finish over the bulge 1.5 m left of the chimney.

The chimney left of the block. Up the outside on well-worn holds.

Or the passage can be chimneyed or grovelled at any point along its length.

Step off the block, then climb the crack, crack, groove, and off-width crack (in turn, past the various horizontal breaks) to the top.

The next climbs are hidden in the passage behind the block.

The first crack inside the passage (on the left wall, facing in).

And, back out into the sunlight. Ok, the cloud-light, with gentle rain.
