A day of good British sport climbing. Slight drizzle and quarried limestone. © Ben.o.neill
Five main walls, three on the N and two on the S. N wall divided into three by a prominent arete at the end of a calcite wall, and a corner in the black face further along.
S wall is more broken with slabby climbing in the first section and a calcite wall in the second.
The cave at the far (east) end of the quarry.
On the hills above Matlock; secluded and quiet.
See sportclimbs.co.uk for access - note that the "broad entrance" to the dirt track on the left is a bit after the left turn off for Masson Leys farm, and has parking on the right hand side of the road, just before the road goes back to a very narrow single track again. Keep left over the gate and follow the ruts from the old quarrying lorries.
Please take care when climbing the stile and gate/fence enroute to the quarry, both have become damaged in recent months.
