Crag features

On the hill on the other side of the road from Cratcliffe is a collection of shady boulders known as Eagle Tor. The land is privately owned and due to the actions of climbers, we no longer have permission to climb here.

Access Banned

The landowners of this excellent Peak bouldering crag have unfortunately stated to the BMC they are currently not willing to allow access, and intend to install fencing around the rocks.

The owners are decent people with a young family and appreciate the quality of the crag. However, the bottom line is large numbers of visitors, damaged fencing, defecation near the house, toilet paper and noise have justifiably eroded their patience.

The boulders are located on private land (effectively their back garden) and the owners are within their rights to eject you.

The BMC advises climbers to avoid Eagle Tor at present

Guidebooks
