I’d be tempted to improvise- from Frodsham monument head down and left towards Helsby on the footpath for 5 mins. Not far past a set of steep steps you’ll find some easier angled stuff with easy tree belays. The scouts use this bit occasionally for top roping. You’re in the right sort of area if you find lots of carved initials and names.
Try Facebook group Friends of Pex Hill (just search on facebook & ask to join) which covers Cheshire & Merseyside Sandstone (recent BMC guidebook, worth getting) - which has a recent discussion about this very issue. Topo guide to Back Slabs at Pex which is handy for beginners/kids learning to climb/abseil included in Files along with mini-bouldering guides to less-frequented venues in the area. That's if you don't mind crossing the new bridge!
