An impressive crag, with spectacularly situated routes above a beautiful valley. With the exception of three or four really good trad routes including the classic West Window Groove (HVS 5a,5a), the other worthwhile routes are hard clip ups. The crag consists of two external faces and a complex series of internal walls and clefts. The sport routes, particularly Thormen's Moth do suffer from seepage. Can be windy and cold.
Thoughtful parking on edge of Wetton Village (SK 106553). Signed footpath leads to the valley and cave (10min).

|Please be aware that the crab on the final pitch (abseil from cave mouth down) of this cave has been in place for a very long time (over 10 years),I recommend that any further attempts of the full cave length, that you replace the final crab and mark date as such.

|Thor`s cave is a must even if you aren`t a climber, very atmospheric place.The routes are good especially Thormen`s Moth I reckon it`s probably the best route of it`s grade in the Peak when i`ts dry.|
