Crag features

Situated on a South facing slope below the quarry. Sheltered by trees, can be green and plagued with midges. Approach is down steep, rocky scree. Good, well featured rock and excellent problems across the grades.

Approach notes

Park in a layby on the left approx 1 mile outside Tintwistle. The layby is just before a bend as the road enters some trees and is opposite a reservoir access road. Space for about 4 cars. From here follow the track through a gate and zig zag up hill until the main path enters the trees and follow this to the quarry. Car to boulders about 30 mins.

Somewhere on your 'I know I should check it out but I know I never will' list that should be on your 'I'm checking this place out asap' list. Quality.

Dream Chaser is unclimbable at the moment as several trees have fallen completely covering the problems around that area. It would need a chainsaw and a lot of effort to shift them.
