Crag features

Close to Cratcliffe and Robin Hood's Stride, Clifftop Boulders offer more excellent bouldering in a pleasant setting. The main boulder itself is actually the lower section of a medium-sized edge which overlooks some farmland. There is a small selection of quality problems which should give plenty of entertainment for the dedicated boulderer. The easy problems are little more than warm-ups.

Approach notes

The best approach is from the back road which leads from Elton to Alport. From the west end of Elton, turn north along a lane. Park at a bend, on a corner, by a gate and water trough. From here, follow the path below a big quarry. Keep on the lower left-hand path and continue around into a field. From here the edge can be clearly seen beyond some trees. To get to the actual block, you need to scramble over a drystone wall and an electric fence. Take care with both of these crossings, one for your sake and the other for the sake of the farmer's wall.

Guidebooks

Peak Bouldering

The Peak Bouldering Rockfax is a massive book covering a huge area including all the main bouldering venues of the Peak District. It includes many more low-grade problems than have ever been documented before including 17 circuits with problems at V0+ 5a and under, and a further 21 circuits with problems at V2 5c and below.
More info
Is this because people are not following the approach in the guidebook? The approach route is not through the quarry its following the footpath below and left to reach the field, then looping round to the right.

Apparently a farmer has been having a go at folks for climbing over his fence so best not to approach the crag through the quarry. instead walk up the road to a footpath on the left, handrail the wall to the top of the hill until you see a gate in the corner of the field, go through this, turn left and at the end of the field you will see some tubing on the wire over the wall where you can get over, this brings you to the top of the crag.
