A fine austere cliff, north-facing in a lofty position looking out over Saddleworth Moors, and the steep slopes running down to Holme Clough and the Greenfield Reservoir. The situation of the cliff and the outlook give a remoter feel than almost any other crag in the Peak, with few signs of human activity from the top of the cliff. The likelihood is that, unless the weather is absolutely perfect, you will have the place to yourself.
There is a fine set of climbs here, many following good cracklines, with more arduous undertakings up the dividing walls and arÃªtes. The crag is a harsh task-master in all but perfect conditions, and such conditions are pretty uncommon up here. The climbs are graded for such ideal days, but if you are here when things are damp and greasy, be prepared to lower your sights or get ready for a hard time.
