Description 

Nowhere near as popular as Rivelin Edge. South-facing but trees and shrubs mean that much of the crag is slow to dry after wet weather.

Getting There 

From the parking at Rivelin Dam turn left at the A57 to reach a building on the right (formerly the Norfolk Arms pub). A track on the right leads up to the quarry. Or bash westwards through the jungle from the lefthand end of Rivelin Edge.

Climbing Season

For the The Peak District area.
