A Rock and Ice instructor watches on and gives advice as a weaseling party squeeze through an impressively small rocky tunnel.

Limbo like maneuvers work well in this rocky descent - a foot first approach - nothing like sticking your foot in it is there?

A backwards exit seems an unlikely way to escape the clutch of this problem but is proving to be the best way out - will the next person do it the same way?


Weaseling and Rock Hopping - Derbyshire and Staffordshires best kept secret unveiled!

Weaseling is a unique activity and is fantastic natural fun for all ages. Rock and Ice are the weaseling experts!

We meet you at the beautiful Roaches Estate near Leek in Staffordshire to explore a rocky adventure playground full of challenges such as crawls and tight squeezes through the Roaches ridge - climb, slide and scramble to the top of a mountainous hillside through natural rocky obstacles and tunnels with experienced climbing instructors to keep you safe.

Weaseling is a unique cross between caving and gorge scrambling.

No ropes are required for weaseling.
No exposure so safe for people with fear of heights.
Not suitable for those that are clinically obese or pregnant.

Suitable for all ages.

All you need to bring is some old waterproof clothing some gloves, and a change of clothing as it often gets very wet and muddy - not forgetting enthusiasm!
A packed lunch might be welcome with a warm drink. ( also a bin liner or bag to hold any soiled clothes is recommended to protect car seats etc ) Leave valuables behind - you don't want to carry bags with you while participating in this activity.

It's a bit like being an ant on a pebbly beach! A great day out!

Cost: From £70.00 per person ( Discounts available for groups)
Duration > 2 hrs (approx)
