Stanage Popular Derbyshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 658 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 450m a.s.l – Faces SW
The highest and most continuous section of the edge, some of the longest routes on natural grit (up to 23m). Unfortunately one of the most popular too (but fine mid-week). Many polished classics including, Heaven Crack (VD), Hollybush Crack (VD), Robin Hood Right-hand Buttress Direct (HS), Crack and Corner (HVD). Less polished are Congo Corner (HVS 5b), The Scoop (HVS 5a), Hargreaves Original Route (VS 4c). For thugs, Flying Buttress Direct (HVS 5b), Tippler (E1 5b) and Dangler (E2 5c) offer much sport.
