Crag features

A small sheltered quarry that has been popular for years because of its accessibility. If you arrive and there are more than a couple of outdoor centre/school minibuses parked in the gateway it is probably worth looking elsewhere for your sport, though it has to be said Zapple is often free. The quarry and nearby edge (not described here but worth a look if you are interested in unexplored jungle) are named after the millstones that used to be quarried here; an old name for them was querns and the corruption 'yarn'-cliffe (and also 'Wharn'-cliffe) indicates a location of this ancient industry.

Approach notes

Situated near to the Fox House Inn - Grindleford Rd (B6521). Very limited parking at the entrance, otherwise walk from parking further north (top of Padley Gorge OS ref. SK 258800. Well served by buses.

DO NOT ABSEIL OVER POPULAR CLIMBS!
