Wimberry Bouldering

This collection of boulders is the Chew Valley\'s best bouldering venue with everything needed for a good session. Although Wimberry is far from the madding crowds of Eastern Grit, it has long been a favourite of the Lancashire and Manchester set and is highly developed and popular. Unlike virtually every other crag in the Chew area, you don\'t need to slog up a big hill to get to the bouldering, although there is a bit of hill slogging between the boulders. The grit is solid with some very sloping holds. Most of the problems are a perfect height and generally the landings are fine. The rock is very coarse in places and can have spectacular pebbles sticking out.
