West Derby Cuttings Merseyside, ENGLAND
Climbs 50 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 100m a.s.l – Faces SW
Quarried off-vertical sandstone, a sort of urban Pex Hill giving technical fingery and dynamic climbing. Good routes particularly at English 5c 6a with plenty of new routing prospects (mainly at higher grades). Classics are No19/20/20 Ron Davies trilogy 4c/5a, No26 Scotties mob....5c, or No31 Tick talk 6a. For those in to dynos, try No9 North face of the AGA 6a, also called Big Daves Double Dyno. [Neil Davies]
Plenty of room for development especially at higher grades but note access restrictions.
Property is owned by rail company Sustrans. Climbing allowed on condition that no more development takes place beyond agreed limits (from the LH end of the first bridge). Breaking this stipulation could lose out on miles of climbable rock!
Access from N at Mill Lane via the old station, or from S via top end of Walkers playing fields on Eaton Rd.

This is the worst crag in the North.Bottle throwing youths, excrement, rubbish and graffiti. Its got the lot. Try the Cathedral quarry instead.

The playing fields in the description of how to locate the crags have been renamed the BILL SHANKLEY PLAYING FIELDS. The crag is not worth visiting in the june onwards as the cover of the trees prevents any sun from keeping the rock dry. not to bad during a warm spring though.

plenty of scope for bouldering. Needs a bit of cleaning up.
