Summary: The Clee Climber is a Long Distance Walkers Association Anytime Challenge Walk which was designed by Dave Irons and which circles the Clee summits of Abdon Burf, Titterstone Clee Hill and Clee Burf. From the starting point of the Clee Climber by the roadside near Hillside Coppice, west of Cleobury North the walk begins with a tough climb through Stanbroughs Wood to Abdon Burf and the summit of Brown Clee Hill. From this point at the roof of Shropshire the walk descends along the Shropshire Way to Cockshutford via The Five Springs. Then after a steep climb to Nordy Bank Hill Fort the walk descends sharply to Clee Marsh near Clee St Margaret before it climbs once more, this time to The Yeld before the relief of a less demanding undulating section of six miles is enjoyed along Pel Lane, around Weston Hill and through Stoke St Milborough to reach Cleedownton. Soon after the climbing begins in earnest again to climb Titterstone Clee Hill by way of the Incline. Afterwards a steep descent is taken via Devil's Chair to Callowgate and after another get your breath back section to Upper Bromdon, the Medieval Village of Egerton and Blackford the final tough climb begins to Clee Burf. Now it is all downhill back to the starting point via Burwarton Park. Phew.
