Rockfax Description
The arete facing the car park is the easiest way up (and down) the pinnacle. Belaying on the tiny summit is tricky and a thread in the summit blocks may be used to protect the escape. © Rockfax

Good fun. Sooo hard to find the pinnacle when the ferns are high.

After a very long time looking for the pinnacle it was almost dark, so scampered up this in me trainers. The pinnacle is not in the main obvious bit of quarry it is back along the edge towards froggat

Well worth seeking out! In summer vegetation it is easy to walk all the way around it without spotting it.

It took us so longer to find the crag (using the hopeless Rockfax description) that we only had time for one route before it got dark! Climbed down the same way.

(and solo down) Done whilst walking between bakewell and hathersage after falling asleep on the bus... where am i?? luckily a millets near the bus stop came in handy, selling the white peak map i didn't have with me for the first bit of the journey :o Had always fancied a look and it seemed like a good way to spice up the walk (was easy enough still in trail shoes). Found it ok just walked to roughly where i thought it might be from the map and there it was :) It can be seen from the road in the winter i think?
