Summary

Cool introduction to Montagu with easy access. Great way to squeeze a climb or 2 in when arriving/ leaving.

Description

Fantastic beginner crag, with a few moderate routes to keep everyone happy. 2 minute walk from the carpark, grassy flat base, and safe bolting. This is as pleasant and accessible as cragging gets.

Access issues inherited from Legoland Area

No permit required

Approach

2' walk on a road

Ethic inherited from Montagu

To avoid any further Altercations with land owners and incorrect equipment being used, the Montagu Mountain Committee (who are responsible for the Montagu Reserve) have asked for applications to be submitted before a new route is bolted.
