Kinder Scout Downfall Area Derbyshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 200 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 564m a.s.l – Faces W
Rough, well-weathered buttresses in an amphitheatre containing the famous Downfall. Sandy, wet and green a good part of the year.

Classics are Zig Zag Climb (VD), The Mermaid's Ridge (30m! HS 4b,4c), The Great Chmney (HS 4b), Extinguisher Chimney (VS 4c), The Dark Side of the Moon (E3 5c) and The Gallows (E3 6a).
