Crag features

This quarry is part of the vast workings opposite Stoney crag and is situated between Goddards Quarry and Hidden Quarry. It has three developed sections that offer a variety of climbing and aspect.
The Sunny Wall has a set of pleasant slabby routes that are sheltered and quick-drying. The Shady Wall is much steeper, seeps badly and gets no sun. The Balcony is higher up in the trees and has a series of relatively poor short routes.

Approach notes

From Stoney Middleton village drive west and park in the layby just beyond the right turn to Eyam (as for Stoney West). Walk back along the road and turn south (right) onto a bridleway. Follow this up to gates between two quarries. This point can also be reached by going over the gate by the parking and following the road directly up to the gates. Cross the gate into the main quarry and walk around to the right to the Sunny Wall. The Shady Wall is on the opposite side, further into the quarry and has a large tree at its top.
For the Balcony, go directly past the buildings on the left when you enter the quarry and continue down a track into a smaller lower quarry. Go across this to a bridleway sign on the far corner. Follow this up hill then break out left up a steep and slippery path which leads through the trees to the walls.

As most of these routes on the White Stripes walls haven't had very many ascents there's still a bit of loose rock, so helmets advised for leaders and belayers.
