These crags are mainly north-facing and sit on the edge of a peat moor (Kinder Scout) where it rains a lot (even by the standards of northern England). Good quality gritstone but sometimes a bit sandy and sometimes green. There are several buttresses scattered over a mile or two of the moorland escarpment. If there's been a sunny, dry spell and you don't mind a walk, it's well worth a visit to escape the crowds of Stanage, Froggatt, etc.

Getting There 

Park in bays off the A57 on the east side of the Snake Inn. Down to the river then follow paths up to Fairbrook Naze or along Ashop Clough. At least an hour's walk, with a stiff flog up steep grass at the end of it.

Climbing Season

The main part of the climb takes an obvious diagonal crack that runs across the buttress from lower left to upper right. From a ledge on the right arete go more-or-less straight up, with a bit of a bulge to finish. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
