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

It is the right hand steep start to Tuesdays Adventure. Contrived. The more right you go the harder it is. You probably want to brush it first!

Boulder start. DBC.

FA: Stephen Shaw, 2019

Another boulder start. You can avoid the start by traversing in from "Lone hebe"

A trad climb on pockets, using the finger crack for gear. Cams 0.5 to 1 and wires.

Climb the overhanging pockets, as the wall gets less steep the pockets get smaller! Share the same anchor as "Saturday.. the same but different" DBCMr

FA: Stephen Shaw, 2017

FA: Stephen Shaw, 2016

Climb the over hanging boulder past 2 close bolts, then up the easier arete. You can avoid the hard start by walking around and starting on top of the boulder to make it grade 16.
