Harrison's Rocks

Harrison's Rocks is the most popular southern sandstone crag with a great selection of climbs in a quiet woodland setting in East Sussex. It was originally bought by local climbers in 1959 (at that time when the BMC was unable to own property) and passed onto the CCPR, then the Sports Council Trust Company Ltd who managed it with close BMC involvement. Ownership transferred to the BMC in 2009 and the site is now actively managed by local climbers who care deeply about the place.
