Crag features

A roadside quarry, a very public spot for climbing, where your antics might attract various comments from passing locals and ne'er do wells. It is composed of a fine-grained gritstone, generally sound, but occasionally friable. The crag has a very open aspect, and as it faces southwest, gets a lot of sun, making this a fine venue for an evening or sunny winter's day.

Approach notes

Leave cars in the parking 100m beyond the crag, on the road towards Charlesworth. The quarry is easily reached within a few minutes.

Overgrown with brambles at the base, but good blackberries. Not climbed often.
