Crag features
UPDATE (November 2007) - NO ACCESS Please do not visit this quarry at the moment as access has been restricted from the crag by the Stone Centre who own it. Discussions are currently ongoing between the BMC and the Stone Centre in order to attempt to resolve the issue. It would be helpful if climbers refrain from climbing here for the time being in order that matters are not exacerbated.

A large generally lose quarry with a couple of solid bits up to 20m high. Truely esoteric.

Approach notes
Leave Wirksworth by the Cromford road. Pass the Wirksworth Industrial centre and just beyond the next house on the left turn left (footpath fingerpost) along a track into a parking area. The quarry lies through the kissing gate on the right.
