Hipley Hill

Climbs 6 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 220m a.s.l – Faces NW

Crag features
Long neglected amall natural crag beside the Grangemeill - Ashbourne road. The crag is dominated by a steep wall undercut by a double cave. Up until 2009 the only routes where on the slabby faces either side of the cave. The old routes look like they'd be pretty good if cleaned, a bit like Aldery cliff.

Access notes
No access probs detailled in 87 guide but things may have changed. take great care not to damage fence when accessing crag. Don't park on road below crag as no suitable spaces and lots of big quarry trucks go by. Park 50m up the Brassington turn off (300m north up the road) beside a gate
