Mina - Mecca 2 © Nick Brown

Crag features

A 'National crucible' of hard sport climbing. A huge bastion of overhanging rock giving short (10m) crimpy desperates and multi-pitch pumps over 50m long. Mostly good rock, a bit flaky in places, and polished in others. Top routes are Sardine (7b+), Indecent Exposure (pitch 1, 7b+), The Body Machine (7c), Chimes of Freedom (8a+), Mecca (8b+, Hubble (8c+) and the hardest route in the Peak, Mutation (9a). Not surprisingly, home of hard bouldering too. Powerband and Ben's Roof to name a few. A suntrap - can be too hot!

Approach notes

From the B6049 Tideswell to Buxton road turn left at Miller's Dale (to Litton Mill). Limited parking is available in small laybys below the crag or at the southern end of Tideswell Dale 8 min walk away.
