The guide has been written by some of the most active locals in all its areas and now you can tap into their special knowledge. No stone has been left unturned in the obsessive drive for top-quality information for this guide. Definitive coverage of almost 4,000 routes from Moderate to E8.
It's all here. Yawning edges to while away perfect summer days, century-old chop routes, deep green chimneys. Crashed bombers, purple heather-clad hillsides, the cry of the curlew. It hardly seems right that such remoteness can be so close to the traffic jams of Manchester and Sheffield.
This guide details all the crags from the Chew, Kinder and Bleaklow areas in one volume. Coverage stretches to the Glossop and New Mills areas with their numerous quarries and secret outcrops as well as to the Saddleworth and Oldham areas.
