Wright's Rocks (Lower Churnet)

Western Gritstone

A superb overhanging piece of sandstone conglomerate, innudated with in situ pebbles, in many horzontal bands. Often in condition when the rest of the Peak is not. Undoubtebly the venue of choice in the dale with many classic problems, from Thorns through to Warchild.

Access is currently banned until 1st July 2022 due to climbers consistently ignoring the access agreement below.

Please stay away from the crag for now to demonstrate to the landowers that climbers are responsible. If this is ignored, there is a good chance that longer term access beyond 1st July 2022 could be lost.




Continued access to this crag is dependant on climbers maintaining a low profile and adopting a strict leave no trace ethos. In addition, make sure you follow these few simple rules:

  • Access is only permitted on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays
  • Only use the gate to cross the fence and access the crag
  • Strictly no dogs - dogs have worried livestock and if this happens again, climbing access could be banned
  • Daytime access only - no climbing after dusk
  • Minimise noise - stay low profile

Group Advice
