The disused quarry of Moss Rake has three developed sections including and interesting slab which gives some good technical climbing of an unusual style for Peak District limestone. There is also a chert wall with a set of dirtier routes and a shorter upper tier. Development is ongoing so the routes list may change and route names will hopefully be added. Please respect any routes that are projects and leave them to the FA.
There is no access agreement with the landowner for Moss Rake and private property signs have been put up. Currently you should avoid climbing here since there are ongoing problems with police being called mainly because of off-road bikers but you are likely to get in trouble if there at the same time.Updated by UKC: 9th June, 2021 9:02
