High Edge Buxton

Derbyshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 32 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 425m a.s.l – Faces NW

Crag features
Quarried.

Insanely grippy Limestone, lots of low grade problems with loads for even little kids..Some highball stuff too.

Landings mixed from good to rocky..

Even on still days it's blumin' windy. Wind direction is usually into the crag so you don't get much shelter 'Bouldering beanie' and down jacket a must!

Lots of litter..:(

Access notes
The Crag is exactly opposite the banger racing track at High Edge Raceway and there lots of open areas to park responsibly. The fence around the crag is in poor repair but don't be tempted to climb over it, there's a style if you continue a couple of hundred yards past the crag with it on your right.
