Crag features

Quarried grit up to 15 m high, about 15 minutes uphill walk from Carrbrook village.

Cons - some heathery, muddy finishes; short sections of bushwhacking through heather and boulders needed to get foot of some routes; quite a lot of loose rock.

Pros - South facing, so gets lots of sun; very quiet; nice views over Cheshire.

BMC website has link to a good PDF guide - the crag isn't fully described in Over the Moors. 

Approach notes

Sometimes nesting birds (peregrines) in Spring - avoid if they are present.

I wouldn't say this is a great venue, but it's worth a visit. It's definitely better than some of the appalling holes in the ground described in the Lancashire guide!
