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.

Start on the first slot of Substantial Losses to reach round the block for a hook at the bottom of the dark pocket. Use a mix of natural, drilled and 'the weird bolted on rocks' for tor feet as you head up then to the curtain-rail just below the bolts. While there are slots drilled on the rail for the big moves, it is positive throughout, albeit a little hollow in places. Traverse right-wards across the curtain on ledges and drilled slots for feet. The right hand side of the curtain is to the lower off for Sick Boy using a couple of hooks, above the lip and and stein and a side pull/layaway below it.
