About The Roaches (OS):

An extremely popular gritstone crag. There is plenty for everyone here...slabs, cracks, roofs and excellent boulder problems. Over 300 routes covering every grade imaginable. There are two tiers, but the bottom one tends to stay wet. Well worth a visit, especially on a warm day.
Nearest town or city: Leek
Directions: OS 119 GR SK 002 629 Alt. 450m
4 miles NNE of Leek. Take A53 for 3 miles to Upper Hulme, turn left past the Rock Inn, and follow the road around past an outcrop (Hen Cloud) to a car park in half a mile. The Roaches are high up on the right after a bit of a walk. The crag beneath the ridge of The Roaches is The Five Clouds.
