Crag features

Some routes were described here in the old Stanage guide but these are grubby and vegetated. The short roofs at the top and some outlying rocks give good bouldering on nice rock, in a lovely setting. It's a bracken jungle in the summer, but a nice shady spot on warmer spring/autumn days.

Approach notes

Park at Cutthroat Bridge. Walk down the road and go through the gate on the left (some limited parking here).

The most obvious approach is to follow the track out of the trees for about 15 mins until an obvious paths leads rightwards and up the other hillside. Follow this until it flattens out and cross the heathery field to the right to the big drystone wall at where it bends round. Climb over at the fence post that has support from either side - carefully climb over here and the climbing is just below and to the left slightly.

It is quicker if the bracken is down to cut off the corner - After about 10 mins along the track, a barbed wire fence drops down to the right. Follow this, then go down to a small stream. Cross over and go up the hillside opposite, eventually joining a path which leads along the dry stone wall. Climb this as above.

Access Advice

The approach is access land but the crag isn't. Please be very careful not to dislodge any blocks when crossing the wall.
