Toad Rocks

This cluster of rocks on the outskirts of Tunbridge Wells is commonly known as Toad Rocks (also referred to as Denny Bottom Rocks). It is southern sandstone's own mini Fontainebleau - a small maze of rocks around the protected Toad Rock sandstone formation - offering a good number of small and relatively easy boulder problems. Some problems have been omitted due to their soft and fragile nature. A few routes have been recorded here, but these have also been omitted due to the difficulty in setting up a top-rope. Being close to the pub, children are often set free to run around while their parents enjoy a Sunday lunch.ConditionsMany of the problems face north and can get mossy. Some are a little soft and sandy, so take great care to protect the rock by avoiding sketchy footwork and not using inappropriate brushes. The grades given tend to change depending on conditions and the degree of sand and moss. Old chipped holds are common but please never chip your own!
