Saw this in the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust sale. Thought I'd share it as it's for a good cause.

This is clearly a front for the Stannington Ruffs appreciation society to boost visitor numbers. The inclusion of said crag does make me wonder about the credentials of the compiler.

I know people with impeccable guidebook credentials who have been ludicrously positive about the place (ie saying its OK). Climbing rubbish covered and vegetated poorly protected biscuit rock above coffin soil with embedded glass and metal shards is not for a genuine obscurist like me...  urrggghh!

Holy cow, you're right!  (I assumed you were taking the piss at first.)

Is this the second time it's made it into a 'selected guide'?  If a mention in 'On Peak Rock' counts, and even they gave its location as "grid reference withheld to protect the unwary."

Loved your logbook entry Bob.  Almost made me want to go and see for myself!

Derek, if you were a climber with an insatiable curiosity for new crags, a keen interest in British woodland wildlife, Industrial heritage and Rifle ranges of the 1860-1945 era, who had, through a biziarre and improbable sequence of events found yourself, new to the area, in lockdown, in Stannington, with no TV, no broadband and nothing to read beyond cereal packets and pickle labels. And there was Foot and Mouth.

still wouldn't recommend checking out that route.

Worse than Mam Tor after a week of heavy rain?

C'mon Bob - almost like you are trying to put me off!  I have a strange attraction to the esoteric and anyway, you lived to tell the tale ;-)
