Lindley Moor Edge

Climbs 61 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 280m a.s.l – Faces NW

Crag features
36 recorded bouldering problems on small buttresses on natural edge and quarry. The small quarry features 23 (recorded in 1978 guidebook) routes marked with painted numbers (the lines are under refurbishment).

Access notes
This crag lies in between junctions 23 and 24(M62); follow A643 until you reach the Wappy Springs Inn, aproximately 50m south of the public house turn under the motorway bridge, if you take the first left there is a car park for the cricket ground, folow the stone wall of the cricket ground to the end, it is an easy scramble to the foot of the rockface.

If you walk along the edge bearing left from here there is a bench and by the bench are some steps that lead to a footpath which goes down the edge giving better access to the rocky buttresses that form the outcrops.

The quarry area at the left hand end(facing the climbs) are better approached from the mina road though there is no real parking areas there

Quick visit today to take a look at the place, too rainy to climb but will certainly be back over from Saddleworth side soon - looks to be some great problems. Would also be up for a crag clean up, lots of bottles lying around the place, cleared up what I could..

Some historical gaps have now been filled by the re-discovery of the June 1978 guidebook "T'Nearest Crag T'College" by Harrison, Bishop & White which details the old numbered routes in the quarry. Further details to follow!

"I've been visiting this wall for nearly a year and I've seen it expand, it now has a new wall at the rear of the church, and a new bouldering room upstairs. Great café and a Cotswold..."
