Who will dare tackle The Sloth?
The Roaches are synonymous with classic gritstone climbing. The classic routes like Valkyrie, The Swan and The Sloth are the obvious ticks for those able to do them.
Walkers have the wonderful escarpments of Hen Cloud etc. and you might see a wallaby if you are very lucky.
We are staying at the Tearooms campsite http://www.roachestearooms.co.uk/camping.html. This is an old faithful site for the Club and is directly below Hen Cloud and there is a pub Ye Old Rock Inn within walking distance. This is really the only viable site for the Roaches. Note the tearooms are worth a visit but have nothing to do with the campsite.
For those who don’t know the campsite, it has no facilities. Water and toilets (no showers) are at the farm up the road. £5 per night.
There is also a bunkhouse down the road https://www.roachesbunkhouse.com/ and many holiday cottages if you prefer something a little warmer.
