Crag features

Worth a quick visit for the esoterica on the main west-facing wall and a good boulder down below. Broken outcrops stretch for a few hundred metres in both directions but these generally have not much to offer.

Approach notes

The best approach is from above, using a footpath from a bend (limited parking) on a minor road that links the B5035 with Bullbridge, through Chadwick Nick. Where the footpath reaches the edge and heads left, turn right and the main crag is 50m further, just below the field boundary.

Some really nice bouldering scattered about, the best of which is on a boulder below and left of the main crag. There's a nice little topo at www.esotericrock.co.uk

A crag that is worth visiting for a few hours if you are in the area, although it is best to avoid the summer months due its jungle location. Hazy groove is an excellent route and an exciting lead for its grade. A direct line up the centre of the buttress, starting up the shallow, orange colored cave and fisnishing on the steep head wall above the groove, has been top roped and would be a worhtwhile E1/E2, although it has probably been claimed before. The crag also has a lot of potential as a bouldering venue and there are many smaller buttresses scattered along the edge.
