Alderman rocks

Andy Stratford

Alderman Rocks is an atmospheric crag perched on top of Alderman hill in the Chew valley area overlooking Dovestones reservoir. It has some of the best sunset views in the area and despite being above the road, it feels remote and somehow exposed. The crag is home to a small number of good routes on rough as you like grit with a couple being best done in two pitches. 

Details can be found here.

The usual parking is Binn Green where a short stiff jaunt uphill gets you to the crag in 15-20 mins. we'll be there from at latest 4 pm at the crag, although some of the locals may be there a touch earlier. Keep an eye on scribble for updates. Please bring a warm layer, bug spray and a headtorch just in case. It's traditional to pop to the Clarence pub at the bottom of the road (Greenfield) after this one so figure that into your return timing!
