Reasonable quality rock, with routes up to 25m long. Unfortunately it is surrounded by trees, is being quarried away at the right and the owner isn't keen on climbers being there. Just worth the effort of a visit for the impressive Private Targets (E1 5b) and Speak the Truth (E5/6 6b).
From the A6 at Darley Dale follow the B5057 (signposted Two Dales) and take the secong left (Park Lane then Hall Moor Road). Continue up the hill into trees. park at a small Water Board building labelled Bent Lane. Walk back and follow a track (blocked by iron bar) on the left for 500m.
