number of new routes and cleaning up of existing routes amongst the trad routes.

on 17.05.2014) 14 bouldery little routes from 6b to 7a+ in Water Cum Jolly.

updated with two relatively new areas and new routes spread all over the crag:
The Racetrack: Pool
Wall: The Playground.
New regearing on The

Long Tor Quarry Right-Hand: (14.6.13)
a newly developed section of crag with a number of worthwhile and very easily
accessible rotues in the grade 6 region.
Chee Dale (updated 215.5.2015) new routes
have started to be added again. The Third Lift
has started the ball rolling.
Cawdor Quarry: (updated 11.7.13)a new
find in the Matlock area. Loads of route in the mid 6s through to a few harder
offerings. Faces east and gets no sun but only 2 mins from the car. Porn
walls and Rusty Walls regearing and cleaning underway. Currently in excellent
Smalldale: (updated 11.8.12) a superb venue
with a varied selection of routes on quarried walls. Originally mostly in
the 7s grade but now with a wealth of easiest routes in the low 6s on the
Outlying Walls. All have good
length but this is not a winter venue - great for a summer evening. All now
regeared save for a few on the Crystal Maze Wall.
Crag X (updated 3.4.12) seven new routes added
and whole crag recleaned and most routes regeared. Good climbing on excellent
quality natural rock.
Helicopter Crag (updated 15.9.2011)
a completely new sector to Hall Dale with a number of routes in the lower
grades: Skyline Buttress.
The Ravine (updated 11.6.11) a
relatively small venue with ease of access and a handful of worthwhile routes.

up and re-geared where necessary with stainless gear. 10 new routes of easier
grades from 6a to 6c.
Slaley Brook: (updated 27.3.11) a major
find with a wealth of routes in the mid 6s (a couple in the 5s) on the shorter
walls and three major classics on the Tango walls together with the longest
sports route in Britain (45m). The Marble wall has also seen a recent re-cleaning
exercise and all the brambles have now been removed. Some new routes have
also been added.
and Pool Wall (6.10.08) two
excellent little faces at Harpur Hill with a number of fine little face climbs
all in the lower end of the sports grades.
Long Tor Quarry:(19. 9 2011) the old
quarry in Matlock has received a big makeover care of two local climbers and
has a number of excellent new routes together with the old ones being tidied
Blatant Buttress (updated 12.4.11)
and Blackwell Halt: (updated 28.8.09) in
the case of the former now completely rebolted and a handful of new routes
Turkey Dip Rocks (27.7.07) another
crag to be recently updated in the bad weather. Steep and very overhanging
with a handful of quality hard routes.

Peak traditional venue with loads of excellent face routes on the best quality
Masson Lees: (updated 4.9.2010) Superb overhanging
limestone walls littered with a number of mid to high grade sports climbs.
Balanced by a number of easier routes as well. A surprising find.
Cowdale: home to the thug. Many routes of the
uphill variety on a crag that will have your eyes bulging as much as your
arms. Takes seepage in winter, superb when dry and provides a canopy of cover.
The routes start at 7a.
Horseshoe Quarry: (updated 3.4.2012)
the most popular sports crag in Britain? Loads of routes in all grades and
now even in the 4s and 5s. The main wall provides the best place to climb
but the depths with which people will go to find new routes on the outlying
walls is endless. And new routes continue to appear.
Deep Dale: (updated 3.9.13) rarely visited
and with a handful of sports routes on varying crags. A good place to flex
the muscles in solitude!
Devonshire Buttress: (updated 4.9.06)
easy access and a plethora of shortish but worthwhile pitches. Hard on the
fingers and grades from 6a up to 7b.
