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.

Janne's favourite climb and Janne's my favourite person! A balancey start with a small over lap at the top. You will want to extend the anchor about 1.2 m to top rope. Tripe bolts, chain and maillon rapide.

It is harder than it looks. Climb straight up the middle of the bluff on small pockets. The name has nothing to do with drinking! Same anchor as above.

Up the right handside of the bluff. The small stump on the right is not part of the climb! Double bolt, chain, and Maillon rapide anchor.
