Crag features

A clean and compact crag that hardly anyone has ever visited. Recent developments have created some good little routes that deserve attention.

The crag needs a couple of days of dry weather to be in the best condition. Any time of year is good for a visit from a cold, crisp day in January to a midsummer's evening. It is sheltered and a fine west-facing sun-trap.

Approach notes

The crag is on the fringes of Buxworth village. From parking on the road take a footpath over a railway footbridge. Take the left fork immediately after leaving the bridge, and walk due west until you get to the crag.

What a great little crag, a bit overgrown but great moves. Will be back with a rope.

I particularly enjoyed the sinister ringing of the railway line moments before a train comes rumbling past at close quarters!

A truly awesome crag that deserves more attention. Get the approach right and you'll have a great day. A winter suntrap with views from the top that could almost rival Scafell.
