Stoney West Derbyshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 48 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 290m a.s.l – Faces S
A relatively minor crag up to 21m high shrouded in trees with rock of a variable nature. Certainly a place for avoiding the crowds, with bags of midle grade esoteria. Some good routes, namely, Swansong and Spiron (both HVS 4c), Turkey Vulture Crack (HVS 5b) and Northerners Can't Climb (E5 6a).
Recently seen attention from Gary Gibson who has produced about 30 sport routes up to 7a
Park on the opposite side of the road leading into Cucklet Delf (sign calls it Eyam Delf) and pass through the gate into the Nature Reserve. After 50 yards a track on the left leads up the hillside until a move around onto the roadside gains a zig-zag path leading to the right-hand side of the crag.
