Access issues inherited from Shawthing Rocks

You will need to be a bit organised to climb at Shawthing Rock… Ring/text at least a day before to book in (not after 9pm please), it’s a working farm; there may be hazards to tell you about.

• Access is a privilege. Not a right.

• Probably closed in the wet winter months.

• No dogs, no shooting. The normal stuff!

• Follow the leave no trace guide- so take all your rubbish (Including biodegradable) out with you.

• Only one group per day.

FA: Stephen Shaw, 2019

A real nice climb, Bryce and Nathan cleaned it and I bolted it. We were worried a large rock at the top looked a bit unsafe. So we tried pulling it off with my 105 HP tractor. On the 3rd pull the chain broke and smashed the tail lights, so it's still there- chained back to the cliff above!
