Burbage Bouldering © Dan Arkle

Crag features

The valley boulders at Burbage offer some of the most friendly bouldering around. The landings are excellent and nothing gets too high. The problems tend to be slabs with some rounded arêtes thrown in. It lacks steep power problems but there are plenty of those elsewhere.

Approach notes

The Burbage South Valley Boulders are situated above and below the main Burbage Valley track. This is best approached from roadside parking on the A6187 above the Fox House pub. From here, locate a stile and follow a (sometimes muddy) path across the moor to arrive at the top of the South Quarry. Walk down a path between the two quarries which leads down and across the moor to the boulders.

Green Drive - There is a very limited parking spot (about 5 cars) at the end of the main valley path. Walk up the Green Drive to the boulders.

No Access Issues

No access problems but beware of the car break-ins in the small parking bay on the A625/A6187 on the Yorkshire side of Toadsmouth bend.

Seasonal Restrictions

Reason: Other

April to June 2023: there are currently Kestrels nesting in the southern quarry at Burbage South - please avoid this for the time being to give the birds some space.

Ring ouzels are also nesting on Burbage, Stanage and Bamford and  this year. The nest sites change quickly and frequently as ring ouzels often have several broods each year with different nest sites for each brood. On site signage will be up around any of the nest sites where climbing may impact on the birds and this is always up to date and accurate.
