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. The second of the tall pillars on "Mount Chossmore" Long reaches on mainly drilled slots (graded for folks under 6ft, so knock off half a grade if you're lanky). No meaningful gear until near the top, so best top-roped or soloed, and mono-points are recommended (can be done without). Bolted belay (care is needed by the belayer to prevent the ropes rubbing/getting trapped). The last move is ~1m above the belay (hook on the left-hand side of the perched boulder.
