Stanage High Neb

Climbs 372 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 500m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
Excellent natural gritstone buttresses up to 20m high. High Neb Buttress is THE classic route (VS 4c) but for something a bit spicier try The Blurter (HVS 5b) or Kelly's Overhang (HVS 5b). Harder still are the superb Quietus (E2 5c), Impossible Slab (E2 5c), No More Excuses (E4 6b) and Old Friends (E4 5c). The best hard route is The Crypt Trip (E6 6b) - take two Friend 1½s!

Access notes
The Stanage Bus from Sheffield or limited car parking available at SK 227843 (Dennis Knoll) approached from Hathersage.

DO NOT park on the track leading up to the edge.
