Restricted Access


7pm Friday 6th October - 4:30pm Sunday 8th October
MassonFest 2023 will be taking place.

Although there are arrangements in place to mitigate parking issues (stipulation that event attendees park in Matlock and walk up, or use the shuttlebus service) it is highly advisable that other climbers avoid the crag on these dates to reduce the likelihood of access issues relating to crag parking and general user volume.


As ever, Please read and follow the parking advice below.

Significant rockfall and remaining instability have been reported on the RHS of Red Wall, particularly around the route Fun in the Sun. Loose rock is very likely to remain on this part of the crag so caution is advised to anyone using this area.

12m. Scramble up the gully to the ledge shared with white lines. Axe placements are found in or around the thin crack line just left of the corner. The crack is followed up to the bulge which is sidestepped using slots in the groove to its left. Lower off from just above the bulge, or if you still have a full head of steam, step right to finish up the last few moves of White Lines. (same grade for either lower-off). For feet - use the large pointy block on the large ledge to get established in the crack, then use ledges and pockets on the right hand wall for your right foot, and the crack and drilled divots on the left hand wall.

As the route follows a corner crack for most of it's length, it has a distinctly mixed feel.
