Chatsworth Edge Derbyshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 100 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 200m a.s.l – Faces NW
A much underrated edge, don't be put of by its lichenous appearance. Always climbable, except after rain. A collection of buttress (10 to 15m) of fine natural grit. Sheltered. Limited No. of routes of all grades, but something for everyone. Classics are Emperor Flake Climb(VD), Cave Crack (S), The Puppet Crack (HVS 5b), Vibrio (E1 5b) and the delectable Pearls (E2 5c). Pick of the bunch are the jamming test pieces, Sentinel Crack (E2 5c) and Emerald Crack (E3 6a), still standing the test of time.
Lies east and parallel to the A619 Chesterfield - Baslow Rd. Approach from footpath approx. 100m south of the Eric Byne Car Park (SK 279721). Bus stop nearby.
