The Cornice (Water-cum-Jolly) Derbyshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 32 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 243m a.s.l – Faces NE
A less extensive version of its namesake in Chee Dale, just as steep but with bigger roofs and less passers by. Reasonable rock (as long as the glue lasts!), most routes are hard (7b+ and above) and require considerable power, technique and large ape indexes! The crag suffers from seepage and is seldom dry before summer. Best routes are Rumble in the Jungle (8a+), The Free Monster (7c+), Brachiation Dance (7b+ - a must!), Superfly (8a+) and The Weakling (7c+). All about 20m long.

Limited parking next to Cressbrook Mill at SK 174727 from where a path leads to the left of the lake and up steps. From top of steps head right along a sheep track. Continue above Moat Buttress until you appear above a railway cutting. The top of Cornice will be visible ahead beyond an impressive stone embankment. Go past the crag and head back down and right.

The sport route near Thatcher Years is in fact called "Incapacity Benift". A few people need to edit their logs!
