A quick micro-entry to our local crag guide is Croft Crags. A 5 meter tall wall just outside the town of Croft. The crag is the closest bouldering (on good rock) to the University, situated only 35 minutes drive away. There are seven routes in total. Three V0s which are all basically the same route. A V2 traverse and a V2 up-problem. The main attractions are the three crimp-heavy harder routes: a V4, a V5 and a V7. If you like your crimps then this is the crag for you. The approach is short, only about 5 minutes from car to crag. Make sure to take a brush as many of the holds were dirty when we checked it out. Ignore the approach notes on the Leicestershire Climbs website (you will get lost, like us) and follow the approach instructions below.
