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.
Since the vandalism in Feb 2013 please be very weary of the boulder problems with chipping - The exposed core in incredibly soft. It's going to take decades to recover.
Park as for Robin Hood's Stride.
There's also limited roadside parking below the crag on the B5056 (SK 228618). Follow the track leading to the left of the Tor.
|Left my lovely green Rab pullover fleece here. If anyone has spotted it a private message and possible pick-up location would be greatly appreciated :D|
