Crag features

Routes up to 70ft. Some may be vegetated but most are fine. Not much in the E1+ grades.

Approach notes

Take the A666 N from Bolton, past Delph reservoir on the L; the road then tends R. After about 1mi are the houses of Cadshaw, turn R and park in a few yards at a footpath signposted Egeworth. [Not Egerton.]

Walk around the hill: the Rocks are a few minutes' walk.

The small quarry is great for a few hours of low grade climbing, in good condition now!

Had a good evening there bone dry, did Orangutan (care needed at the top) and VS next to it, both good routes Also Adam lead Gorilla hard for E1 but very good first pitch with a bold top pitch that I back off. Definitely a crag worth leading shame it dose'nt get more attention

Main quarry well overgrown

Majority of Salamander has had an extensive cleaning. The initial wall under the overhang needs a bit of brushing but apart from that its ready to be climed again. Just needs a bit more traffic to keep it in good nick.

The area around orangutan and green slab have been given a good cleaning. The top has been cleaned right back making toping out and belaying a lot easier. There are some really good routes here and a more thorough clean is planned to bring it back to its former glory.
