Climbing at Cademan Woods near Whitwick Leicestershire

With my second and more successful trip there we have managed about 5 problems and tried few more on a nice warm Thursday evening. Rock was so sharp that already after a few days of climbing in and outdoor my hands were just cut by small sharp edges on the rocks.

The routs on site very from F3 to F7c and height wise there are some nice small traverses like ‘lowest of the low’ which is a 6a but only about 1 and a bit metre off the ground, and then we have slightly higher routs that are a bit more then 2-3m height like ‘diamond shield’ which is a 6a to 6c+ depending how you ascent. I will add a link to the site information on the bottom of the post.

It’s definitely a nice spot on a hot day as the trees provide loads shade and there is just so many problems to get on with. Rock seem very green but it’s mostly very dry and grippy, and only polished on some obvious footholds. The best parking is along the Turolough Rd LE67 5AF.

Greetings my dear reader. My name is Natalia and I am a 28-year-old Marketing with Advertising graduate from around the Midlands in England. I love to travel and do loads of road trips, but above everything, I love climbing adventures with my climbing buddies. With this blog, I would like to be able to note down my thoughts and share my adventures I can look back at in years’ time with a smile on my face. I am also on a search for more exciting adventures and self-development. Since I absolutely adore natural world I also want to develop my knowledge and skills to reduce as much waste as I can that is bad for the environment. I like feedback and others input so I always want to hear other people’s experiences and ideas.
