Approach notes

Important access note & changes to guidebook directions - The stile has been removed. Access to the crag is still possible by several routes, described below and in this bing maps screenshot: http://www.lancashirebouldering.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/Crag-Stones-Access-Points-1024×835.jpg

1. Take the footpath near where the style used to be. This leads through nearby trees. Split off from this path to regain the old permissive path.  It is possible to stay on access land all the way to the crag.

2. Park to the north and take the public footpath to the building marked Stone Fold on the OS map. You can then go across access land over Crag Hill to access Crag Stones from the the back.

3. Park in the north and walk down the access road. This is likely to be a longer walk, but could be a good option in wet weather when the footpath is boggy.

Fantastic lil gem of a crag, spent an entire day here and didn't see or hear another soul! Only three points to make... 1 - don't under estimate the boggy walk in, I was waist high at a few occasions.. 2- bulls arnt friendly and the othe side of that wall is about a foot lower :/ ... 3- don't let either of these dissuade you from having a climb here!
