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.
