Rivelin Edge

South Yorkshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 207 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 270m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
One of the Peak's best kept secrets. A superb edge, sheltered and often sunny when elsewhere is 'degged out'. Good quality natural grit (8 - 20m). Focus point is the famous 'Needle' ascended by 8 routes (VS to E6), the best being Croton Oil (HVS 5a). Main edge specialises in ribs, cracks and slabs. Outstanding routes are Altar Crack (stiff VS 4c), Blizzard Ridge (HVS 5a), The Brush Off (E4 5c), Auto da Fe (E4 6b) and New Mediteranean (E5 6c).
