Kinder Southern Edges

Climbs 280 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 600m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
A collection of rounded tors and crags set in fine position on the edge of the Kinder plateau. A superb place for midweek solitude, and although the routes will seldom be in pristine condition, that's part of their charm. Rounded breaks, rough holds and weird pockets abound. Enjoy the following superb routes, Herford's Route (VS 4c), Arabia (E3 5c), Gillott's Point (HVS 5a), Voyagers Destination (E2 5c) and Sons of the Desert (E7 6b). The best, and most continuous crags, Upper Tor and Nether Tor have separate entries on the database.

Access notes
From parking midway between Barber Booth and Upper Booth, walk through Upper Booth and follow the Pennine Way Alternative Route up Jacob's Ladder to the western (left-hand) end of the outcrops (1 hr). Alternatively for the eastern most crags, approach as for Upper and Nether Tors, but continue onto the plateau's edge and walk west.
