Crag features

A big, quality bouldering / soloing crag, but very dirty in places due to the lack of traffic it receives (see below). Well worth a visit.

Approach notes

"Sensitive Access: As of 28/05/05 the crag is on 'Open Access' land, therefore climbers now have a statutory right of access to this excellent wild bouldering crag."

(From Access section of the BMC website, as per link in previous info)

Those shooting tracks are down on the Council's books as unclassified roads, and the sign just says "unsuitable" for cars, as opposed to the proper sign banning cars going over Pock Stones Moor. I think you'd be fine to take a car there (providing you can clear the odd bump where there's a drainage ditch) but at the risk of pissing off the Estate. Before the CRoW Act came in they did ban climbing at the crag as soon as they found out it was going on, so they clearly aren't sold on the idea anyway. They can make things difficult if they want to.

Nice crag, deserves more traffic. Is parking just past the Shooting Lodge allowed?
