The Upper Circle (Water-cum-Jolly) Derbyshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 80 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 220m a.s.l – Faces S
Almost exclusively traditional climbing with routes of mainly HVS and above, between 10 and 20m long. Few stunning routes, but a pleasant, sheltered sun trap, making this a year round venue (seepage permitting). Some veg/loose rock, but obvious and eassily avoided. Best sections are Jackdaw Point for a clutch of reasonable HVS to E3s and Sweet William Area (mainly short E1 to E2s). Best of the few sport routes is the impossible f8a, The Inch Test.
