Higgar Tor

South Yorkshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 196 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 430m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
A small solid natural edge (6m high)of rough grit offering a variety of pleasant middle grade routes. Pride of place is the Leaning Block whose 12m front face overhangs by 15 degrees. Savage jamming and explosive moves are needed here. Classics are The File (VS 4c), The Rasp (E2 5b), but catching up are Flute of Hope (E4 6a), Bat out of Hell (E5 6b), and Linkline (E5 6c). Exposed to prevailing winds, quick drying but cold in a.m. Choose a summer evening. Good bouldering round to the east-facing side.

Access notes
A few min. walk from limited parking (SK 256822) on minor road between Sheffield- Ringinglow - Hathersage Rd. and Sheffield - Hathersage (A625) Rd. Alt. approaches from Burbage North or South.
