New Churnet Bouldering Guidebook

Churnet Bouldering cover, 103 kb
Churnet Bouldering, written by Stuart Brooks
Churnet Bouldering is a comprehensive guide to the magical sandstone bouldering in the Lower Churnet Valley. Located just south of the Peak District National Park boundary and neighbouring Alton Towers, the Churnet features some of the best bouldering in the Peak area. This guide features never-before documented areas, such as Farley Woods and Threapwood Woods, as well as classic venues, including Cottage Rocks and Wright’s Rock. Over 600 problems are included and grades range from Font 3 to 8a+, with a particularly high concentration of Font 5s and 6s.

Meticulously researched over several years, Churnet Bouldering is written by Stuart Brooks, one of the area’s most active developers, supported by a team of local climbers. Problem descriptions are accompanied by photo topos and maps, and there are detailed notes on access and conditions – especially important in the Churnet – as well as a host of other important information.
