Crag features

Locally popular small collection of buttresses in a fine position (windy). Good quality, rough grit. Link in with a visit to the Pots and Pans Quarries for a worthwhile day out. Classic routes are Crispy Crack (HVS) and The Great Slab (VS). Some worthwhile bouldering.

Approach notes

Parking at Binn Green picnic site on the A635 just over a mile away from Greenfield in the Holmfirth direction. The rocks are obvious, cross the A635 and follow the track to the left for 5 mins. Cross the fence and follow the wall up to the crag (20 mins steep uphill).
