About Shipley Glen(OS):

This is a very pleasant and well regarded bouldering area with plenty of fun for all abilities. The crag is a series of small buttresses, with about 5 to 10 problems on each, and over 100 routes in all, though none are over 20 feet tall. A top rope can be useful since the landings are not always good, and some of the finishes leave a little to be desired. Don't miss this is you are in the area.
