Description

Laddow was a popular crag in the first half of the 20th century, but it now rather neglected. This neglect means that some climbs have become grassy and lichenous. Good quality gritstone, though protection is sparse on some of the face routes. It faces east, so gets the morning sun.

Getting There

Laddow lies on the Western side of the Peak District, on the southern side of an area of high, boggy moorland known as Black Hill. From parking near the Youth Hostel at Crowden on the A 628 follow a good path northwards (part of the Pennine Way). The easiest approach is to keep to the path along the edge of the moor until past the crag, and then drop down. About 50 minutes walk.
