Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Crag features

Esoteric bouldering venue on Burbage Moor including the Buried Boomerang Boulder.

Approach notes

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.

Rockfax App

Available in the Rockfax App

The Rockfax App brings together all the Rockfax climbing information with UKC logbooks and presents it into a user-friendly package for use on Android and iOS devices.

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