Rock Climbing in the Peak District

Celebrated as the UK 'climbing capital', the Peak District's climbing wealth is steeped in a history and tradition of classic British rock climbing. Its gritstone escarpments host famous areas which all have classic routes, from the ideal beginner's climb to modern test pieces. In fact, the Peak has a wide range of crags both large and small with well over 10,000 recorded climbs.

 

Huge selection of Rock Climbing areas can be found in the Peak District

Around the moors above Hathersage there is a concentration of gritstone crags of which Stanage is pre-eminent, with a complete range of climbs.

 

Further south, Higgar Tor, Burbage Edge and Millstone Edge provide generally hard and strenuous routes, while Froggatt Edge is both more sheltered and rather easier. Continuing southwards along the Derwent valley, Curbar Edge is more similar to Millstone while Baslow and Birchens Edges are relatively easy. Gardoms Edge is different again, green and wooded, with a range of routes of varying standards.
