Baslow Edge

Climbs 250 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
Baslow is a quiet little back-water, lacking any of the great grit classics of its near neighbours, it has long been a neglected venue, mainly frequented by explorers looking for an escape from the crowds that inhabit the cliffs further north. The fact that we saw fit to leave it out of the first edition of Peak Gritstone East speaks volumes, clearly pointing to the fact that it is the least significant of all the outcrops between Stanage and Chatsworth. Despite this, Baslow is worthy of a visit or three, for a little peace and quiet.

Access notes
Approach from the North from a car park at Curbar Gap (SK 261747) or from the village of Baslow to the South (car park at SK 257721).
