Baslow Edge

Derbyshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 232 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
Although less impressive than its neighbours (Froggatt and Curbar), Baslow Edge possess a large number of small (8m) isolated buttresses of good quality. Few routes are polished and most are in the lower grades. An excellent choice for summer evenings away from the crowds (take a picnic!). Classics include Flying Crag Groove, Lacifitra, Fingers Crack and Pensioner's Bulge (all VS 4c), Index Climb (S)and Don's Mantel (E2 5b). Has received some interest of late, hence its hardest route, The Grand Potato, E7 6b.

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).
