About the Event
There are two usual approaches:
1) From parking by the bend on the B6045 a short distance below the Grouse Inn. If this is full, there is a National Trust car park a little way back up the road on the downhill side. Follow the hill-crest footpath to a stream and gate then onto cliff, 15 to 20 minutes from the car. The first section of the main edge is 100m before the prominent bulk of Froggatt Pinnacle which protrudes above the line of the cliff.
2) From a small lay-by (up to 6 vehicles) on the bend below the Chequers Inn, walk back up the road past an old horse trough, then turn right and follow a steepening track straight up the hill to arrive, slightly sweaty, in front of Downhill Racer.
