Description

Bowles Rocks offers superb climbing on the single best outcrop of sandstone in the south east. The majority of the climbs are located on one long section of cliff that offers routes of all grades.

The quality of climbing does mean this is a popular venue at weekends.

As you walk along the base of the crag from the car park the climbs appear to get better and better. Towards the far end you come to a large amphitheater - this area has a large number of high quality routes on very good rock.

The crag lies within the grounds of Bowles Outdoor Center http://www.bowles.ac/. This brings with it a fee for climbing, but on the upside, it also means that the top of the climbs are well maintained - rope grooves are constantly being filled with cement.

The areas are described left to right.

Getting There

Head south west on the A26. About a mile after the Eridge Railway station take a left down Sand Hill Lane. Drive along here for a little over half a mile, then turn right into the car park. The climbs lie up ahead on your right.
