Chrome Hill

Derbyshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 2 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 424m a.s.l – Faces ?

Crag features
The path may not be marked on some OS maps, but from above Stoop Farm it passes around the north side of the small crag known as Tor Rock and then descends the next field. Notice here that the small hill on the left is capped with gritstone and the wall abruptly changes colour as the stone changes, while to the right a stream comes off the gritstone and immediately disappears underground into a swallow hole in the limestone.

Follow the path down the hillside and along the bottom of the next field to reach the start of the Chrome Hill ridge. The climb up the end of this is quite steep but the view compensates, getting better by the minute. The position at the summit is very fine, with an excellent outlook across the Dove to Hollinsclough and a fine view down the valley and over Parkhouse Hill to Earl Sterndale village

Access notes
No access issues, however path is no marked on OS maps, but a right of way has been negotiated, see informed above.
