Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.
At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.
We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.
Rocktype Grit (quarried)
Altitude 412m a.s.l
Perched high above Glossop, with a wild moorland feel, this small quarry offers some very impressive walls and arêtes. It's best visited in the afternoon or evening, when it catches all the sun going. Worth taking a bike up, just so you can get back to the car in 5 mins as it is all downhill.
Park and walk uphill as for Yellowslacks but continue straight on at Mossy Lea Farm through the gate and stile heading for Doctor's Gate footpath but fork left at the signpost and barn. An indefinite path leads off left to the quarry about 400m after the bridge.
It is also possible to approach from the A57 via a footpath that leads off beside the house at the first bend, 1km from Glossop. Follow this to meet Doctor's Gate footpath. The walk is shorter but there is no parking here.
Approach time: 30 mins
