Crag features

Largely neglected by climbers but very popular with boulderers. It is a beautiful spot with a superb variety of quality problems, especially in the low-to-mid grades. The landings are mostly good, the rock quality solid and the setting is stunning. 

It is a low-lying crag with routes facing in all directions. The place can be green after rain, and the less-traveled routes can be lichenous.

Since the vandalism in Feb 2013 please be very wary of the boulder problems with chipping - the exposed core is incredibly soft. It's going to take decades to recover.

Approach notes

The crag is situated in the central Peak, 5km south of Bakewell. There are two approaches:

1) - Park by the side of the B5056 Bakewell to Winster road opposite a wide farm entrance. Cross the road and follow the gravel track that leads to the farm but keep left up the hill heading towards the rocky towers of Robin Hood's Stride that are up on the left.

2) - On the minor road that runs from Alport to Elton, there is some limited verge-side parking by a stile in view of Robin Hood's Stride. Follow the collapsed wall towards the Stride - a flat 5 minutes from the car.
