Crag features

An interesting, and seldom-visited quarry, which, in the past, has attracted Joe Brown, Wilf White and Johnny Dawes to add new routes. With minimal approach and super-sunny, seepage-free aspect, it has its good points. However, the rock is a little friable, and the last metre or so can be horrible loose. Hanging rope seriously advised.

Approach notes

It is approached easily, from parking at the sharp bend between Elton and the upper parking for Robin Hood’s Stride. Park near the water trough, avoiding any obstruction of gates. Follow the track to the quarry in 1min.
