Routes up to about 35ft, mainly D-HS. A few worthwhile climbs VS-E3, including the classic Druids Face, E2 5b. Good for beginners, hence popular with groups. "Worth a visit", and generally well-protected.
Think the original directions (below) are a bit out of date or slightly wrong (they are possibly an amalgamation of two sets of directions)!
More correctly is: Park near to the junction of the B6391 and the A666. There is a layby for six or so cars just near the junction on the B6391. There is also space for three or so cars on the West side of the A666 a few metres north of the junction. This second parking space is almost directly opposite the footpath to the crag, which is signposted to Edgworth. This is a gravel path through the trees. Stay to the left and follow it around the hill. After a few minutes you get to the first little quarry. Keep on going round and you will see the crag before you over the stream.
(Directions from 2000 if not before - Take the A666 N from Bolton, past Delph reservoir on the L; the road then tends R. After about 1mi are the houses of Cadshaw, turn R and park in a few yards at a footpath signposted Egerton.
Walk around the hill: the Rocks are a few minutes' walk.)
