Kinder Northern Edges Derbyshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 270 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 606m a.s.l – Faces N
The major Kinder outcrop. An impressive natural edge situated in a fine moorland setting high up on the edge of the plateau. Good quality rough rock with routes up to 20 long. A huge variety of climbs of all grades. Best visited during a hot summer, can be sandy. Look out for Misty Wall (S), anything on Legacy Buttress (HVS to E4), Exodus, Jester Cracks (both VS 4c) and The Twisted Smile (HVS 5a). For something more demanding try Candle in the Wind (E3 5c) and Natural Born Chillers (E6 6a).
From parking just south of The Snake Inn on the A57 Sheffield - Glossop road, a footpath leaves (SK 115904) a few 100m south of the Inn. Follow this alongside Fair Brook to the plateau (40 min). The first climbs are found left of the brook (Chinese Wall). Or if heading to the ashop edge area follow the shoulder of land just west of the brook which brings you to the top just east of Cabin Buttress.

Brothers buttress is marked in the wrong place on the map on p.145 of WG. It's much further E - about where Eureka buttress is marked on the map.|
