Altitude 536m a.s.l
Several routes can be soloed above reasonable landings, also some bouldering possibilities. Predominantly sound rock and ery pleasant in sunny weather, fairly grim in fog.
A short but intense walk-in leads to the first of the 4 main crags, however only Cranberry Tor is currently open to climbers.
Nice but, underwhelming from a climber's perspective.
The area covered by this description is the Stiperstones National Nature Reserve and subject to unusual local bylaws which restrict certain recreational activites - including 'rock climbing with equipment'.
Natural England own the site and climbing is restricted to Cranberry Rock (the tor with the best routes) and request 'No permanent climbing aids', which is taken to mean no pegs, tat or bolts.
To discuss the permit system call the site manager on (01743) 792294.
|"No scrambling on these rocks" so always remember to pack your bouldering mat & beanie to avoid confusion.|
