Parking and Approach

Approach by turning into Holly Lane off the A6 at Ambergate. Drive along this and the continuation called Jackass Lane, to possible parking at a lay-by outside a house and opposite a farm. Walk or drive down the track next to the house for around 250m to an open area in the woods where about 9 cars can park and there are information boards about the woods. Take the path on the right - major path marked with arrows on posts - for about 5 minutes to the first buttress. From the path looking left you can see the first buttress which is not much more than a boulder, but keep going and the full cliffs are about 2-3 minutes more.
