Joining Instructions for Climbing Courses

Thank you for deciding to let us teach you some new skills at the beautiful natural rock outcrop at Harrisons Rocks. We hope that your experience will be second to none and just to make your visit passes that little bit smoother we have prepared the following information.

How to find us.…

From Groombridge take the road towards Eridge Station.
500m after leaving Groombridge, Fork Right.
After 75m turn right down a narrow track, Forestry Commission signpost 'Birchden Woods'.
This leads to the Car Park.
Meet your Instructor by the notice board.

Harrison's Rocks is not easy to find and does not have a post code but is between TN3 9NH & TN3 9NJ. Map reference is TQ532 355.

What we recommend you bring (per day).....

Packed Lunch - there are no shops near by.

Clothing. All specialist equipment will be supplied. Please bear in mind that you will be based around the same spot for the whole day, and that the weather can be a little variable. So when packing your bag remember, 'better to take too much than too little'.

Soft sole shoes/ Trainers. Please note heavy boots should NOT be worn, as they erode
the rock.

Trousers but not jeans, are recommended rather than Shorts, as the rock is very abrasive.
Waterproofs (inc. trousers if possible).
Spare Jerseys or Sweatshirts.
Suncream (SPF 15 or higher).


We will try our hardest to ensure that your course meets and exceeds your expectations. If for some reason you feel this is not happening please do not hesitate to tell us, preferably whilst we can still do something to improve it.
