COVID-19

As the Covid-19 lockdown eases, access for climbing is opening back up, subject to some measures and restrictions depending on where you are going. Please make sure you have read and understood our current advice before heading out and apply it alongside RAD advice to ensure access issues don’t develop.

Moss Rake

Peak Limestone

The disused quarry of Moss Rake has three developed sections including an interesting slab which gives some good technical climbing of an unusual style for Peak District limestone. There is also a chert wall with a set of dirtier routes and a shorter upper tier. Development is ongoing so the routes list may change and route names will hopefully be added. Please respect any routes that are projects and leave them to the FA.

Parking and Approach

The crag is approached from the minor road above Bradwell, parallel to the B6049. To get on this road from the south, turn off the A623 at the Tideswell Anchor pub crossroads towards the pub. Turn immediately left in front of the pub down a minor road. Follow this for a couple of kilometers to a left turn at a junction which drops down towards a big old quarry entrance with Moss Rake written on stone block on either side. Park here and walk through the gate and up into the first landscaped section of the quarry. Head slightly left up a grassy slope to a ridge overlooking the bigger second hole. Drop down here steeply on scree and follow the track at the bottom initially under the chert wall and then on to the slab know as the 'Library'.
