Climbs 22 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 223m a.s.l – Faces NE

Crag features
A worthwhile sport crag with easy access, good rock and a smattering of routes up to 18m long, mainly in the 6b+ and above range. Shrouded in trees and because of its aspect it is seldom in condition until early summer where it can provide an escape from the heat. Stays dry in the rain, although the belayer might not! Best routes Great Expectations (6c), Top Marx (7a), Certificate X and XXXX (both 7b).

Some routes on the left do suffer from loose rock and vegetation, so take care!

A good (and free) topo can be found here: http://sportsclimbs.co.uk/mainpages/peak/Crag%20X%20Topo.htm.

Access notes
Situated on the southern side of the A6, about ½ km west of the Monsal Dale car park (SK 171705). Those wishing a shorter approach can park off the road, just before the clearway sign directly below the crag.

In need of some gardening, otherwise a great venue in spite of the road being so close. The cave roof is crying out for a bolted aid route.
