Bosley Cloud is the prominent hill 5km east of Congleton, marking the boundary between the hills of North Staffordshire and the Cheshire Plain, the boundary between the two counties running through the summit trig point.
The climbing here is of two distinct, contrasting styles; natural and quarried rock. The crags line the Cloud from east to west and can be very green after a wet winter, but on a warm summer's day can be delightful.
Visible from afar, the Cloud can be approached from Congleton, Bosley, or Rushton Spencer, but can be frustrating to reach without a map.
For the northern crags, approach from the car park on the east of the rocks on Peover Lane. A large track runs to the summit from here giving access to the three crags.
For the western crags, approach from Gosberryhole Lane.
