Piper Stones

(also known as Shooters Nab Boulders)
Grid ref SE118154

Javascript is required to view this map.

Piper Stones, also known as Shooters Nab Boulders, is small collection of boulders usually passed on the walk in to the main climbing at Shooters Nab.
Not a major venue but a few good problems and traverses worth a quick visit to tick them all.
All problems are on good rock with nice features. A brush maybe required for some of the North facing problems, numbers 8 to 11.


ACCESS

Park up, considerately, at the limited parking at Woods Mount.
There is then a fairly direct path through the field to a National Trust sign/stile onto the Kirklees Way footpath which leads you below the boulders within 10 minutes.


An easy to print PDF TOPO guide to all the problems can be downloaded from here
