Neddyfields is a perfect bouldering location for groups and boulderer's of mixed ability. With the wide range of grades, there is something for everyone to try. The landings are easy to protect and the rock is excellent to climb on.
The area is a good place for warm ups as there are some great routes in the 6’s to play on, all with good landings.
The rock type is Limestone, which is a good choice for novice/indoor climbers as it is more like climbing holds than sandstone/gritstone.
The base of the wall is flat and all the problems are technical and vertical, ending with a flat ridge. From here it is good to hand traverse and down climb. There are many grades V0 to V10.
With a short walk from the car park and a relatively easy approach, this area is great for climbers who require easy access to an exciting bouldering area with the best views.
Grades: V0 to V10
With its stunning outlook, Neddyfields Main Cliff is great place for a morning climb! It’s quick to reach and is at the base of the approach path before entering a rock hopping section of Godnor Far North. The Neddyfields Bouldering Wall is on the short wall above here too. The cliff provides shelter from strong westerly winds and in the afternoon offers shade. Here you’ll find lots of friendly grades, mostly 4, 5 and 6’s.
Grades: V0 to V5
The cuttings boulderfield contains some incredible climbing, but it's pretty spread out and quite difficult to navigate without local knowledge and/or a guidebook. I've actually been to the area before, and was able to remember where a couple of boulders with some varied climbing on them were, but the afternoon we spent in the cuttings was somewhat hampered by not being able to navigate, and in particular by the lack of an up-to-date guidebook or app. I believe that this may have been due to a guide being taken ill at the last minute, but think that it was worth noting.
Above the Cuttings boulder-field is the sport crag called The Cuttings.
For those who are just starting out leading, there are some nice and easy climbs. There are a couple of routes in the mid 6s which shared the same start, for those with more experience.
Give yourself a confidence boost at the Sunbather's Slab, Sundance (f5+) and some other easy slabs, before Hermit's Hole boulder where you can try the juggy roof start to Lightning Strike (f7A+). The Tank near the lower stone hut, Hard Labour (f5+ a classic for the area) and Captain Cook (f6A) are a lot of fun!
