Crag features

The problems here are surprisingly good considering their unimpressive appearance on the approach trudge. There are a few nice slabs and walls as well as one or two interesting rock features to struggle with.

Approach notes

Park in the Cutthroat Bridge lay-by on the A57 Sheffield to Glossop road. It is a large lay-by, separated from the road by trees, and usually home to a tea wagon. The bridge from where the paths start is further down the hill. To get onto the moor, follow one of two well-marked paths onto the ridge from where the main bouldering spots can be clearly seen.
