Rockfax Description
An excellent scramble (really quite easy for a Mod). It provides a good winter route under the right conditions though care is required as there have been avalanches here. © Rockfax

βeta: Did it in bone dry conditions and it was a very pleasant but easy scramble with a few short steeper sections. Combined it with Mark Richards' High Peak Walks book walk 2 - The Saddleworth Edges for a good long day out.

βeta: An excellent route for all seasons. Good fun when dry, running at full spate or frozen. There is a bit of loose rock about so care is needed.

Gerry_Doncaster 8 Apr, 2017 Solo Nice route with continuous scrambling all the way as well as a couple of tricky moves. Did it in a dry spell and the rock was still quite wet and greasy.

Yoshi 20 Aug, 2016 Solo O/S Been wanting to do this for ages. Just as good as hoped. Better than Wildboar? Yep. Best Peak district scramble done to date? Probably. Loads of water, which meant taking the falls direct was a fairly unique experience.
