Froggatt Edge Derbyshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 454 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces W
The main edge is a virtually continuous face of exceptionally clean and quick-drying rock of the highest quality up to 17m high. Both natural and quarried buttress exist, giving a variety of climbing styles, although the edge is home to some of the best slab climbing in the country.Work your way along the grades with Sunset Slab (VS 4b), Three Pebble Slab (E1 5a), Long John's Slab (E3-ish 5c), Downhill Racer (E4 6a) to finish up the superb Hairless Heart (E5 6a). Popular routes are polished and weekends often busy. An excellent sun-trap on winter days. Best routes: Valkyrie (HVS 5a) and Beau Geste (E7 6c).
From the North on the B6054 Sheffield to Calver road, parking available just below The Grouse Inn (SK 259779). Alternatively head East from just South of The Chequers Inn (SK 247760).
