A good crag but better suited to short solos and bouldering. The main quarry is barely climbed anymore, which is a shame as there are some good (ish) routes but appear loose and corroded. The bouldering, however, is excellent and a great circuit all along the edge can be worked out giving a good few hours worth of quality problems. Some, such as Terradaktil (E1 5b) are very high and demanding and a spotter and mat is required. stand out problems/solos are Terradaktil (E1 5b), Space Trip (HVS, 5a), problems around the hidden wall area and the problems in 'the place sheep go to die'. Consult the Huddersfield area guide for a more comrehensive list.
No access problems at present. I believe access has always been given and have never encountered anything to the contrary.
