Southern Sandstone Climbs (SSC) is a non profit 'website' aimed at
the transmission and communication of information related to climbing on Southern Sandstone and the environmental issues surrounding access and conservation. (This is known as the 'Objective Statement')

The 'website' was founded in May 2013 in response to a growing concern regarding the lack of up to date online information on Southern Sandstone climbing and environmental / conservation issues.

At the time of its creation it provided a place holder for the SVG, SDT before they both launched solo websites to support their causes. In addition the site aimed to offer more transparency to the inner working of the HRMG and the work they do to maintain Harrison's Rocks and Stone Farm.

Today SSC continue to provide dedicated pages promoting awareness and information regarding the various groups and trusts. The website continues to provide news and information regarding current sandstone climbing and conservation affairs as well as information on climbing locations. The website also includes the code of practice, climbing guides, open meetings, specialised sandstone equipment and occasional climbing reviews on sandstone clothing and equipment.

The intention of the SSC website is to provide all this information in a central one-stop location. We hope you find it helpful and informative.
