I was following a twitter conversation today between @philsheard and @IanMulvany and discovered there is a huge boulder in Shoreditch Park. The big old lump of granite was part of a regeneration scheme of Shoreditch and created by artist/climber John Franklin. A second boulder exists on Mabely Green.

It’s bloody huge and looks like a whole lot of bouldering fun. It’s been fully conquered and there is a write up of routes on the UKC website.

Ian has a flickr set including the boulders’ installation and some route tips. I hope to get my ass down there soon for some bouldering action.
