Yarncliffe Quarry Derbyshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 51 – Rocktype Grit (quarried) – Altitude 259m a.s.l – Faces SW
A small quarry with two distinct sections. The LH is slabby, clean/polished (sometimes sandy) and slabby. Easy routes, Ant's Arete (HS 4a), Ant's Crack (S, worthwhile but popular with Outdoor Groups). RH section is steeper and although a bit dirty/green offers some great jamming routes, Sulu, STP and Fallpipe (all VS 4c), and Zapple (HVS 5b). Best route is the rarely climbed magnificent arête, Creme de la Creme (E5 6b)
Yarncliffe has just been treated to a clean up (March 2010). Many of the trees that were shading the crag have been removed or trimmed, and the routes cleaned up significantly. This should allow them to dry out and hopefully stay good - if people climb them!
Situated near to the Fox House Inn - Grindleford Rd (B6521). Very limited parking at the entrance, otherwise walk from parking further north (top of Padley Gorge OS ref. SK 258800. Well served by buses.
