Derbyshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 131 – Rocktype Grit (quarried) – Altitude 282m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
A few quarried bays and a smaller edge. Rock generally sound. Main bay is sheltered from prevailing winds and has a magnificent back wall (22m high) containing the jamming testpieces of Billy Whizz (E2 5c), Boulevard (E4 6a), and High Street (E4 5c). Easier classics include Excalibur (VS 4c), Three Tree Climb (HS 4b), Great Harry (HVS 4c) and almost anything on the Gingerbread Slab (always busy, routes of VD to E2). The Red Wall routes further right are well worth a visit.

A suntrap; can be mild in winter, boiling in summer, especially in the afternoon. Midges can also be a problem due to the pool in the middle.

Access notes
Approach SW from Surprise View (Car Park at SK 251800)on the A625 route between Sheffield and Hathersage. Sheffield - Castleton bus alights at the View.

Note that the part of the A625 that goes past the Surprise View carpark has now been renumbered the A6187. So if approaching from Sheffield, don't do as I do and blindly follow signs for the A625! At the point where you have to take a left turn to follow the A625, carry straight on.
