What was once Shropshire’s best secret is now generally acknowledged as one of the country’s most interesting crags. Whilst Nesscliffe is most famous for its striking and often bold traditional routes, there is also plenty of excellent bouldering to be had. The good spread of styles and grades coupled with the amazing scenery and sense of history should provide something for everyone.
Leave the A5 at the Felton Butler Roundabout and follow the road into Nesscliffe. Turn off opposite the Three Pigeons pub and follow the lane until the obvious parking appears on the right.
