MOUNT EDGCUMBE ROCKS


Mount Edgcumbe Rocks are situated on the north side of Tunbridge Wells Common, south of the A264 near the junction of Mount Ephraim Road and Church Road. It's also within walking distance from Tunbridge Wells train station. The whole crag is bouldering and there are no fixed bolts in place. The rock is soft and sandy in this area and you must climb with care and precision. Some problems remain dirty and mossy due to the lack of traffic. The best time to visit is in early spring and autumn as the plant life can be quite overpowering when untamed.

Due to the rock having only a thin outer layer, the rock is very fragile and can only be soloed or top-roped.  Lead climbing is prohibited and placing trad gear would easily rip out and damage the rock. There is a CODE OF PRACTICE for climbers that should be read before climbing and setting up top-ropes.
