Crag features

A good bouldering spot with a few routes to boot. Incorrectly called Owler Tor in the Bouldering guides it is situated in fine position above Millstone Edge. Rounded and quick drying but a bit busy with tourists at weekends. Finishes off a nice day at Millstone Edge.

Approach notes

Park or alight at Surprise View car park, between the Fox House Inn and Hathersage on the A625 at SK 253801 and head uphill, past the wonderful tor of Mother Cap. The tor is obvious ahead (15 min). Alternatively cross the moor from the top of Milstone Edge.
