Rather a scruffy quarry, though there is one outstanding climb. Sheltered, so popular when higher crags are too windy. Several areas are shaded by trees, so best conditions are in early spring. Some routes can be sandy at times.

Getting There 

Lies close to the B6521, near Grindleford. Park by the gates and walk in.
