Wolf Edge

Staffordshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 47 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 450m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
A small, broken-up bouldering edge that is also the highest edge in Staffordshire. Occasional traffic but worth a visit on a quiet day or a spare few hours. Home to some great highball easy problems and harder problems such as 'The Fin', 'The Quantum Leap', 'Project Quantum' and 'This is my church'.

Access notes
Walk up footpath just after 'The New Inn' past a house on your right, down a muddy farm track all the way up to the crag. Beware of the big bull!

As pointed out by Whealiebob, there's a naming / grading discrepancy between the BMC 2004 (and 2009) guide and High Over Buxton (2003). By some quirk of synchronicity, the crag was developed and written up by both sets of guide authors completely independently (a situation that wasn't addressed in the recent BMC updated guide). Ideally an attempt should be made to reconcile the two...hopefully I'll get around to it soon...

Nice location and good, rough Gritstone. Its also in High Over Buxton, but with entirely different problem names (and grades!!)

Thats This is my Church V5/6. On the other photograph- you can see Quantum Buttress in the distance, just past the fence, with Project Quantum up the arete in view.
