/ Winnats pass
I soloed Elbow ridge in winter conditions by headtorch a couple of years ago. It was easy and enjoyable after the first tower, which was worrying in the dark - loose snow on compact limestone. Not sure a rope would have made any difference.
The ridges don't hold snow as well as you might expect and you'd want properly frozen turf, but they are good-looking 'mountaineering' lines by Peak standards...
If you mean Elbow Ridge, Matterhorn Ridge, etc, then look at the photos on here- I think some might be under 'Mam Tor'.
They're pretty obvious, tbh.
I defiantly think there's potential for some new routes, trad, winter, sport, dry tooling and probably bouldering.
I'd be up for taking a look at the area, I was around the area yesterday checking it out. Got a few ideas.
