Crag features

Well weathered grit, with quite pronounced crystals. Exposed to elements being on the highest point in West Yorkshire so dries quickly. Worth a trip for some esoteric moorland gritstone bouldering. Further details in the Huddersfield Bouldering Guide.

*Now updated with Over The Moor (OTM) guidebook listings including the "new" Slab And Arete Boulders section.*

Approach notes

Should be no problems now since CRoW

Guidebooks

It should say now completely 'paved'.
Al Doig - 06/Jan/13
The muddy pool beneath Access Denied is no completely 'paved'. I will try to upload a picture at some point.
Al Doig - 06/Jan/13
OTM is useful for identifying problems, but there's still plenty more to be found in the out of print Huddersfield Area guidebook.
Alex Thompson - 07/Oct/12
True moorland bouldering - quiet, peaceful, great views and fantastic variety of problems :-)
PD - 03/Apr/12
There's plenty more micro-problems just waiting to be sent! Haven't been able to include the old projects identified in the guidebook, certain that some of these have been completed by now.
