Heading up to sheffield this weekend, wondering what the warmest crag near to sheffield is. Stanage seems to get the sun quite a lot but are there any other options?


Cheers

If you like being warm, avoid Stange at this time of year unless there is not a breath of wind. Stanage is more wind trap than sun trap otherwise.

Rivelin is a good option, being low lying, South facing and sheltered - and also very near Sheffield.

Froggatt is also a good option, being low-lying, sheltered (in places) and having some nice bays that face the late morning/ afternoon sun.

Rivelin or, if its cold but sunny, Beeston Tor

In reply to climb the peak: I'd just like to put a word in here in favour of Agden Rocher, not an obvious choice but sunny and sheltered in spite of its beautiful outlook.
