Climbs 579 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 330m a.s.l – Faces W
Varies from small, sometimes vegetated buttresses, to some of the finest walls on gritstone, up to 23m high. Known as the 'Cloggy of the Peak' because of the high number of hard climbs. Tradition maintained with several routes of E7 and above,such as the already classic, End of the Affair (E8 6c), and the hardest, Doctor Doolittle (E10 7a) the other E10 on grit. Specialities include poorly protected walls/slabs and savage well protected cracks. Best routes are Two Pitch Route (VS 4c), The Peapod (HVS 5b), L'Horla (E1 5b), Elder Crack (E2 5b), Profit of Doom (E4 6b) and Linden (E6 6b). All the 'Moon' routes should be on your dream list.
