Crag features

A small Limestone outcrop in a sheltered dale that has been developed mainly by Jon Fullwood and Ned Feehally. Despite first appearances the rock is solid and it is well worth a visit if operating at font 7A or above.

Approach notes

The crag is on CRoW land so climbing should not be a problem. However, problems have arisen with climbers causing damage to walls while accessing the crag, ONLY CROSS WALLS AT A STILE/GATE. From parking in Peak Forest (GPS Coords: 53.313851, -1.827821). Follow the track heading NE to Conies Farm. After the track a public footpath continues through two fields and crosses one stile (53.319414, -1.822014), in the third field there is another stile in the bottom right-hand corner of the field (the corner nearest the parking; 53.318933,-1.820976). Once over the stile follow wall up the valley carefully crossing a fence. See attached map (photos tab). Take extreme care to avoid damaging walls, and be polite to anyone with any concerns.

It has been agreed that no new problems be added to the bits either side of the main wall in order to protect rare ferns which grow in the breaks

Some issues with access to this crag have arisen due to climbers causing damage to walls while approaching. There should be no need to cross any walls except at stiles/gates. However, there is a fence that must be crossed. Please follow the approach described here http://peakbouldering.info/areas/5-central-limestone/crags/155-conies-dale thank you

Anyone climbing font 7a on Peak Limestone needs to pay this place a visit. Great dynamic climbing and not as loose as it looks.
