Crag features

Not a high crag - more a jumble of high-ish boulders, never much more than 9m; longer routes involve some traversing. Can be green after long spells of wet weather; early morning sun only. Most routes in S-HVS range. You may enjoy Gib (E2 5c), with hard starting moves, or the "superbly technical" Porridge At Morridge Top" (E5 6a).

Gib is E2 6b and Porridge at Morridge Top is E5 6b.

Approach notes

No problems, though owner unknown.

>From the A53 Leek-Buxton road, turn off at Morridge Top and follow the minor road to within 50m of the crag.

Owned by Staffordshire Wildlife Trust - Climbing is allowed providing access agreements are adhered too. Do not attempt to access Baldstones directly across the brook as this is a SSSI.
