Black Rocks

Matlock Area

Although home to some of the hardest Gritsone climbs, there is plenty of rock to keep the less talented interested.

From time to time, the crag is a favoured hang out for local teens - this can mean you might encounter some smashed glass so it's worth being careful on and around the crag. There has been one recent report of climbers having cans, bottles and stones thrown at them from the top of the crag. If this happens to you, report it to the police immediately.
