Shelf Benches

Climbs 45 – Rocktype Grit (quarried) – Altitude 440m a.s.l – Faces NW

Crag features
An old quarry with some very impressive walls and aretes, generally solid rock, with some good bouldering dotted around. A good evening crag, as it faces west. Worth taking a bike up, just so you can get back to the car in 5 mins as it is all downhill.

Access notes
Park at the first sharp harpin on the snake pass, and walk down to Mossy Lea Farm, go right just after the farm, up Doctor's Gate. after a couple of minutes bear/turn left where a vague farm track leads to the crag.
