Approach notes

Heading west out of Elton take first right and park just after the corner with bench, gate & water trough. Follow the path below the big quarry, on the left hand path, over a style and across the fields to the crag visible beyond the tress. Check for any access issues.


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
Is this because people are not following the approach in the guidebook? The approach route is not through the quarry its following the footpath below and left to reach the field, then looping round to the right.

Apparently a farmer has been having a go at folks for climbing over his fence so best not to approach the crag through the quarry. instead walk up the road to a footpath on the left, handrail the wall to the top of the hill until you see a gate in the corner of the field, go through this, turn left and at the end of the field you will see some tubing on the wire over the wall where you can get over, this brings you to the top of the crag.
