If you think that Horseshoe is bad then don't come here! One to avoid!!

Have to be honest and say this is not somewhere I'll be rushing back to. Very uninspiring, and although the calcite bubbles make for some great holds, you do feel like you're playing russian roulette every time you pull on them

I was climbing at Blue Yonder in the Peak yesterday Ė had a really good time with some good routes completed. However upon returning to the car (which was parked as the description at ) found 2 of my tyres deflated. By coincidence the local police neighbourhood team (PSCO 4413 Sue Lester) was patrolling the area and stated that a lot of people had reported the same situation, in which darts had been used to puncture the tyres. I donít know the area that well, however if people wish to climb there I would advise parking within Wirksworth itself and taking the long walk up the hill and into the quarry. I know this sort of thing can happen literally anywhere and Iím just glad the car wasnít broken into; however with the police reporting this is a common pattern at the moment, thought it would be advisable to warn others.
