Restricted Access

The bouldering at Anston Stones Wood all takes place on land owned by Anston Parish Council. To preserve the good relationship that climbers have with the Parish Council, The British Mountaineering Council have agreed the following guidelines which we ask all climbers to adhere to:

  • Stick to existing footpaths and firm ground, avoid trampling on vegetation
  • Pick up any litter you come across
  • Stay off the railway line
  • Climb only on areas that have already been developed (i.e. Woody’s Rock, the Wave area, Rocky Valley, Hidden Wall, Apprentice Wall, Dukes Wall, Through Post, and Frodo buttress.)

In addition to the above, avoid topping out where possible.

Rockfax Description
For the purposes of this problem, consider the large weird plinth/tufa thing to be part of the floor. Sit on it, pull on and slap around the lip for the lip hold of Beta Blocker, and finish up this. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Sit start, sat on the plinth (i.e. not using it at all as part of the climb!), undercutting an obvious black tufa hold. Pull on and launch to the good lip hold of Beta Blocker. Finish up this.

βeta: Can’t believe anyone takes this using the block. It doesn't add any difficulty to beta blocker so is quite obviously not allowed

βeta: Hard for 7B if you do it properly without the footblock.

βeta: Not soft because you can't use the plinth for your feet. Using the plinth is just glorified standing up.
