PEX HILL


A hole in the ground that holds an important place in the hearts of Merseyside climbers, easy of access, great rock and a myriad of problems the attractions of the place are obvious. Many of the routes are soloed by the competent (with or without mats) though top roping is also quite popular here despite the fact that many of the climbs are less then 10 metres long.
