Rockfax Digital App Sandstone Update V2.0

The first Rockfax book to southern sandstone was published in 2017 and covers all the best routes and problems on the outcrops of Kent and Sussex.  

Rockfax has just released a big update to Southern Sandstone on Rockfax Digital which includes lots of new routes and significantly more bouldering, to create perhaps the most comprehensive guide to climbable rock for the area. There are many updates and refinements, which also includes the latest access information as of May 2023. 

Climbing Southern Sandstone rock is a delicate art and it is the duty of each climber to check access information using the BMC RAD. Access information has been included in the app via clicking on both information icons but can always change, so never assume.

Some key access items are: 

High Rocks: - 2020 Access update which requires pre booking before entrance and no bouldering.

Eridge Green:- 2022 Access update which has new restrictions as well as new areas opened. Eridge south which is still under review is currently banned but is included in the app. Check access information before attempting any climbs and ensure that you don't use chalk or substitutes.
