/ Sheltered Climbing (Eastern Grit)
Rivelin is very sheltered and a really lovely little crag, quite likely to be busy.
Lawrencefield, similarly. (Yet, strangely, my partner and I had the place completely to ourselves for most of a sunny Sunday afternoon a couple of weeks ago.)
Froggatt can often be a bit of a sun trap, though the top isn't nearly as sheltered as the bottom.
Turning Stone Edge faces East and has a thick tangle of Rhododendrons at the top (bottom, middle...) Bit esoteric for a visit from afar possibly, but there are a few gems there and you can't get much more sheltered from a cold westerly wind.
Rivelin, Cratcliffe, Hobson Moor (and various onscure moorland quarries)lots of obscure Froggatt guide crags like Matlock Bank. Wharncliffe and Froggatt worth a look if the wind isn't too strong from the west. Turning Stone and Ramshaw worth a look after morning sun.
