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.

15m. Start atop Mount Chossmore as for the velvet pelmet, but follow the lower line of bolts out across the lip of the cave using acrobatic moves. Turn the arete into the scoop using a variety hooks, torques and interesting foot work before being ejected from the scoop and crossing the arch to a short vertical crack that leads into the finish and crux of the velvet pelmet, along which the route follows.
