/ Easiest climbing in the Peak District?
Windgather on grit, Harborough on nice, pocketed limestone. Both close to the road.
Checking them out now, very much appreciated
Another vote for windgather. Loads of easy routes and a lovely spot. The lack of any difficult routes means the place is fairly relaxed and there's a good atmosphere, so perfect for beginners. The only downside is that belays and top ropes can be tricky to set up as anchors can be a bit thin on the ground in some areas.
Hope you have a good session!
Baslow has a good selection of easy short routes and is usually quiet.
Also Rob's Rocks, chew valley.
Most of the gritstone edges have a good selection of easy routes but places to avoid taking beginners are:
Stoney Middleton - polished and nothing below VS
Curbar - Even the easy routes are hard
Black Rocks at Cromford
Agreed. Baslow is very freindly with lots of pleasant easy angled rock and short routes. Birchen is also very good for beginners but tends to be a lot busier than Baslow.
