Description 

This relatively small crag holds a disproportionate number of good moderate climbs, making it very popular with beginners, groups and families. There are a few harder problems, but the majority of the good climbs are in the 5.4 - 5.9 range.

The cliff faces west and catches afternoon and evening sun.

Getting There 

From the village of Baslow drive east on the A619 for a couple of miles until you come to the Robin Hood pub, at the junction of the B6050. Park up next to the pub and walk a short distance east until possible to cross over a stile. From here follow the trail to the crag. It will take a little over 10 minutes to reach the crag.
