The Rabbit Hole Cliff

  • Grade context: AU

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.

Good protection, steep crux.

The climb starts with a steep mantel on to a ledge, followed by another steep awkward bit. Rest in the narrow chimney before climbing to the chains. DBCMr
