Most Peak climbers have seen the quarries as they barrel down the road from Hayfield towards Chapel-en-le-Frith. Many will also have made a mental note to go there one day but no-one ever does. This is kind of reasonable as much of the quarry is unstable and pretty uninviting. But, a little rummaging about and you will soon discover that there are a few good climbs that make a visit worthwhile.
The setting could hardly be better. The quarries are at their best on a glorious sunny morning or on a hot summer's day. There is very little seepage and the rock is generally very clean and sharp edged.
There are no access difficulties at the crag. You can approach from many directions: the best thing to do is use an OS map to get your bearings. Whichever way you choose it takes about 20 minutes to get to the rock, and you won't see another climber there, guaranteed.
