The sheltered valley hosts a number of buttresses with relatively easy access and a number of routes in all the grades. Walls on either side of the stream offer lots of options no matter the season.

The rock is limestone, and the quality is generally good, although the popular climbs and boulder problems are getting polished.

Rubicon Wall with its easy access, hard fingery climbing is always a popular spot to start the exploration.

Getting There 

It is possible to approach from the east or west. From the West approach via the small lane from Miller's Dale. To get to Miller's Dale travel south on the B6049 from Tideswell. Walk East along the stream to reach the climbing.

To approach from the East head south from Litton and park near Cressbrook mill. Walk West to reach the climbing.

Start below the prominent flake at about 10 feet.Climb up to the flake and follow it to a tricky step left. Now climb the blank looking wall using good technique and little protection. At the top of the wall you get a set of holds and some gear. Phew.Continue directly above to finish via a groove that soon end at the base of some trees....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
