Crag features

On the hill on the other side of the road from Cratcliffe is a collection of shady boulders known as Eagle Tor. The land is privately owned and due to the actions of climbers, we no longer have permission to climb here.

Access Banned

The landowners of this small bouldering crag have unfortunately stated to the BMC they no longer allow access, and have installed fencing and signs near the rocks. The owners are decent people with a young family and appreciate the quality of the crag. However, large numbers of boulderers, damaged fencing, defecation near the house, toilet paper and noise have eroded their patience. The boulders are located on private land which is effectively the owners back garden. The owners are within their rights to eject you. The BMC advises climbers to avoid Eagle Tor at present.

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
The landowners of this excellent Peak bouldering crag have unfortunately stated to the BMC they are currently not willing to allow access, and intend to install fencing around the rocks. The owners are decent people with a young family and appreciate the quality of the crag. However, the bottom line is large numbers of visitors, damaged fencing, defecation near the house, toilet paper and noise have justifiably eroded their patience. The boulders are located on private land (effectively their back garden) and the owners are within their rights to eject you. The BMC advises climbers to avoid Eagle Tor at present
