Esoteric bouldering venue on Burbage Moor including the Buried Boomerang Boulder.
By far the easiest approach is to park in the layby on the A625 just up from where it is joined by Whitelow Lane. Walk back down the road about 50m and go through the gate immediately opposite the junction with Whitelow Lane, then follow the path up to a stone pole at the crest of the moor (10 minutes). Head right to reach Made in Sheffield in approximately five minutes; head left for everything else, which is reached in about 10 minutes along a good path that takes you above the crag.

The Houndkirk Tor is a bit further east|

|Nice little bouldering venue, off the beaten track but worth a visit if only to do "....and tigger too" on the Buried Boomerang Boulder.|
