At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

Routes up to 70ft. Some may be vegetated but most are fine. Not much in the E1+ grades.
There is also a good and mainly easy bouldering circuit on solid rock in the small quarry, most of which have top outs. And some harder tests can be found on the Red Wall and the River blocks.
Take the A666 North from Bolton, once you've left the village of Egerton continue on the A666 for a mile or so, past a small forest on the left and then take the first right at the junction of the B6391 and the A666. There is a layby for six or so cars just near the junction on the B6391. There is also space for three or so cars on the West side of the A666 a few metres north of the junction. This second parking space is almost directly opposite the footpath to the crag, which is signposted to Edgworth. This is a gravel path through the trees. Stay to the left and follow it around the hill. After a few minutes you get to the first Small quarry on your left.Follow for another 2 mins and the Red wall will be on your left. For Cadshaw River Boulders continue to take the track down the hill until you see the Cadshaw Castle Rock outcrop on your left. Turn down the track towards castle rocks but instead of crossing the river take the path left and follow the river up until you reach the River boulders, aboout 5 mins from red wall.
