This is one of the great crags in the Churnet. Interesting rock, varied routes and stars across the grades. The newly-added desperates join a host of 70s classics to bring the crag into the modern limelight. The highballs here are considered to be some of the best in the country.
Ina's Rock - The amazing geology of the crag is apparent upon arrival. The large overhanging upper section is the cross section of an ancient river bed. The buttress is in two contrasting sections; the lower hard yellow sandstone, the jutting upper bunter pebble bed.
Alton Cliff - A forgotten area from the 1970's tided up to give some good bouldering.
