Crag features

A very hidden quarry (little pex) wall consisting of monos, sloppy crimps and poor feet perfect for bouldering. Strong fingers and good footwork required grades from 6A to 7A+. A couple of platforms have been build so good landings. Problems can be topped out but not recommended. Senator buttress is the big clean looking wall seen from the valley floor where the best problem here abouts can be found “Elysium” immaculate rock, has been topped out but? Random boulders are pottered around the place. A Crag of every style and problem going go get to it.

Approach notes

A  few approaches to the crag can be made one parking spot is on Wentedge Rd in between the Wentvalley Aggregates and Kirk Smeaton in a lay-by big enough for around 4 cars from here head through the gate and down the field staying on the southern side of the river heading west. Keep walking down here until the big clean buttress (senator buttress) can be seen either go straight up to this the quarry is hidden on the right not recommended or keep walking on the track until vegetation becomes more manageable and go back on yourself cross country. The quarry is quite hidden (the exact co-ordinate is 53.649803, -1.243602. Copy that into Google Maps and you'll get there.
