If seventh grade sport climbing is your game you'll love it here, but give it until May to dry out and take a brush. Steep, overhanging sport routes up to 20m long on good rock which stays dry in the rain. Best routes are Much Monkey Magic (7a), The Main Motor Mile (7a+), Blazed But Amazed (7b+) and Laughing At the Rain (7c). The two trad routes have gone to grass.

This Crag is called Craig-Y-Biceps in the 2012 Peak limestone Book, Page 138-9. part of Staden Quarry!
Park as for Staden Main Quarry then walk back down the road (2 min). DO NOT PARK in the passing places below the crag.
