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.

10m. Climb the left arete of the third, and widest of the tall pillars on "Mount Chossmore" using natural placements and a couple of side pulls near the top. No meaningful gear until upper breaks, so best top-roped or soloed. (bolted belay). Can be done in mountaineering crampons or rock shoes.
