Stoney Dale

Climbs 39 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 175m a.s.l – Faces NE

Crag features
Not very sunny as crags face north-east, all routes come into condition quickly but require a soft brush. Overall a good selection of routes and boulder problems.

Access notes
No problems with access but pay attention to onsite Forestry Commission signage.

Park by the old station and walk along the lane for about 200m to Red Road. Follow for another 100m until you reach the wall. Head up the hill side on the right and keep right. Follow this footpath until you reach the small quarry comprising of 2 right-angled walls 300m away. The other crags sit in the woods above the path and can take a bit of finding.
