Crag features

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.

Rain Dog.

Approach notes

No access problems at present. I believe access has always been given and have never encountered anything to the contrary.

Loads more problems in the Kirklees guide that arnt on this UKC page. Download it; website below....

the eastern problems and main quarry are on private land- keep the noise down to prevent incurring the wrath of the local farmer. Once over the final stile (or kissing gate as it is now) the boulders lie on access land below the pennine way- the first of these being "the place sheep go to die" I have never seen any dead sheep there and I wouldn't want to- the sheep on that moor belong to me!! The Kirklees guide is excellent.

Great bouldering along the edge, Square, Cheese Block and 'Sit Start' area well worth the walk in, nice and peaceful, quality problems - excellent views :-)

The bouldering is ace, as is the view. The quarry however makes Worlow look like Millstone Edge...

Forget about the quarry and head along the Pennie Way for some bouldering along the edge. Pack your Huddersfield Bouldering Guide and enjoy.
