Cratcliffe Tor

Derbyshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 228 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 220m a.s.l – Faces SE

Crag features
A superb, quick-drying outcrop of excellent quality grit up to 30m high. An ideal early year venue on a sunny day. Remove the cobwebs with the marvellous Suicide Wall (HVS 5a 5a), Tom Thumb (E2 5b) and the very fine E2 5c's Fern Hill and Five Finger Exercise. You could also push the top grades by an ascent of 'The Groove' (E9/10 7a). Fine, open bouldering at the top of the crag.

Access notes
Since the vandalism Feb 2013 (http://www.ukclimbing.com/news/item.php?id=67831) please be vary weary of the boulder problems with chipping - The exposed core in incredibly soft. It's going to take years to recover.

Limited roadside parking below the crag on the B5056 (SK 228618). Follow the track leading to the left of the Tor. To maintain access you MUST NOT take a short cut through the farm or across the field. A stile opposite Robin Hood's Stride allows access to the wood left of the Tor.
