Brilliant bouldering crag famed for its traverses. More recently, ground developments have also made it a brilliant crag for bloc (straight up) problems too. Crag classics include: Big Marine, The Priory, Fertile Delta SDS, The Gauntlet, Ping, In Excess SDS and Grow Wings.

The BMC purchased this crag in 2007 and climbers can now enjoy unhindered access. However, a code of practice has been agreed to prevent disturbance to the houses below the crag. Please respect out neighbors and follow the crag code of conduct:
|The best bouldering place in the North West.

|Very overhanging and therefore good in the rain and for getting pumped. Thuggish style of climbing with some technical moves.
Some excellent bouldering and mediocre routes. Awesome for body wrecking traverses.
