Crag features
A good little crag with a few distinctly good routes on nice crisp quarried grit. The main area is quite impressive, but the outlying rocks to the left have some hidden gems.

If climbers wish to park at the gun club there is a locked gate with a combination lock and I was told by gun club members that if I wished to enter I had to contact the BMC for the code. Also members of the gun club seem to be under the impression that Shooter's Nab can only be accessed by members of the BMC.

Ricochet Wall and Sweatyman are the best routes in the Huddersfield area and stand up to anything in the Peak.

This is where it all started for me back in about 1974. Although only a small section feels properly crag like, this palce has lots of atmosphere and some good routes. A classic at what was VD but is now HS is Rifleman\'s Chimney (I used to do it as a multi pitch as we were using short polypropolene ropes!!!). Also recommnded is Sweatyman which was VS+ which inludes a stomach traverse. Not sure about access these days, but am about to re-visit.
