Crag features

A variety of pleasant, short mid-grade climbs on good compact grit. A fair amount of bouldering is also available. Where necessary, stakes provide belays at the top but these can be difficult to locate under summer growth.

Approach notes

Park on Holestone Gate Road at the bend by the phone masts taking care not to block the gate entrance. Go through the gates and leftwards along the path next to the field boundary.

Guidebooks

Peak Bouldering

The Peak Bouldering Rockfax is a massive book covering a huge area including all the main bouldering venues of the Peak District. It includes many more low-grade problems than have ever been documented before including 17 circuits with problems at V0+ 5a and under, and a further 21 circuits with problems at V2 5c and below.
More info
Tree fallen on Wee Wall obscuring some of the problems. The best one (Secret Lemonade Drinker) is still climbable though.

An unusual and little frequented venue which i had been meaning to re-visit for some time. Fortunately some good people have recently gardened the better routes and these have belay stakes, some perseverence is required in finding them though. Generally the routes we climbed felt easy for the grade, although protection is sparse. Fantastic views but difficult getting around due to gorse, heather, nettles etc and hidden boulders. I reccomend a visit.

nice place. was using an old (1960s) chatsworth guide which made things interesting. Thge boulder's were great, though friable in places, and there's actually a few quite nice line in the quarry too.
