Cow Dale Derbyshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 28 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces NW
If seventh grade sport climbing is your game you'll love it here, but give it until May to dry out and take a brush. Steep, overhanging sport routes up to 20m long on good rock which stays dry in the rain. Best routes are Much Monkey Magic (7a), The Main Motor Mile (7a+), Blazed But Amazed (7b+) and Laughing At the Rain (7c). The two trad routes have gone to grass.
