The Left Celestial Twin in Wolfscote Dale has some decent trad climbs and is never busy.
Approach - There is parking for about a dozen cars at the lower end of the minor road (signed Beresford Dale) that runs south from Mill Lane - the road between Hartington and Warslow. This is 2km west of Hartington. Keep left at both junctions and stop before the ford. Cross the footbridge and follow the path across the meadow to the cliff.

The centre of the wall, right of the groove, on (mostly) good holds. A couple of old threads may be in place.
