Crag features

A great place to climb. Especially if you want some peace and quite, you'll be lucky to see many others here. There's plenty of routes to be climbed here around the VS range. Moreover, you'll notice the roof straight away at this crag and for good reason. The climbing around this roof (Necromicon) offers three incredible routes that are graded: VS 4c, E1 5b & E2 5c.


Please note: some belay posts may be a bit on the loose side - check them before use 

Approach notes

Leave the A556 (Walmersley Rd) at the traffic lights (Post Office) onto Walmersley Old Rd. Follow road for 800m as it goes round the back of the Mason's Arms pub and over the motorway. Continue through Nangreaves. Park as the road finally deteriorates into a rough track. Walk up for 200m and climb an old white gate on the right. Cross the field keeping the old dry stone on your left. Pass through the next gate and turn right. Follow fence to top of quarry.
