Crag features

A small, secret bouldering area: "problems start low down and rapidly become rounded near the top" (quoting guidebook). You could fall backwards onto neighbouring boulders falling off some problems - take a mat and mate to spot you.

Approach notes

On the A625, just up the road from the Surprise View bend that goes down to Hathersage. Walk towards the Fox House until you reach a white milestone saying "Sheffield 8 miles" on the RHS. Walk into the woods on the left over a stile.
