Crag features

The edge consists of a line of east-facing outcrops and quarried walls in a strip of woodland overlooking the Crich/Bullbridge road and just beneath the public footpath running along the ridge between Crich and Chadwick Nick. It is generally sheltered and fairly quick to dry, though its location in a wood makes it prone to reclamation by the local flora.

Good topo here.

Approach notes

From the centre of Crich (parking available) walk a short distance uphill along the B5035 Whatstandwell road as far as the Fire Station on the right, opposite which is the start of a path signposted 'Public Footpath to Chadwick Nick'. Follow the footpath across several stiles and fields. After the third stile, keep close to the wall on the left. A few metres after the fourth stile carefully cross the fence on the left and descend back leftwards to the foot of the main crag. The most obvious feature is a horizontal ceiling split by a jamming-crack; this is The Roof.

No Access Issues

This crag is situated in woods below a public right of way, the landowner is not known. There are houses below the woods and climbers may be noticed by residents of these. Previous conversations with residents ended with cautious acceptance of climbers. The quarried area where 'Mainstream' is found appears to be the top of a residential garden, avoid these areas. Please keep a low profile, remain courteous if challenged, take contact details for further discusion, and refer to the local access rep.
