Virtually continuous natural gritstone of excellent quality. Some of the most popular areas (Goliath's, Tower Face, The Unconquerables), but some worthwhile 'inbetween spots'. Whatever your grade you must do Fern Crack (VS 4c), Tower Face (HVS 5a), Goliath's Grove (HVS 5a) and Billiard Buttress (HVS 5a). Arete lovers will feel gorged with The Archangel (E3 5b), White Wand (E5 6a), Ulysees (E6 6b) and Unfamiliar (E7 6c).
Stanage Bus from Sheffield.
Car parking at The Plantation car park (SK 237837), toilets close by.
There are problems with car crime in the Stanage area. DO NOT LEAVE ANY VALUABLES ON DISPLAY IN CARS OR MINIBUSES.
Dates: 1 May to 30 July
Reason: Nesting Birds
Ring ouzels are nesting on Stanage, Burbage and Bamford this year. The nest sites change quickly and frequently as ring ouzels often have several broods each year with different nest sites for each brood. On site signage will be up around any of the nest sites where climbing may impact on the birds and this is always up to date and accurate.
Stanage from High Neb westwards (and Bamford Edge, Moscar, Derwent & Hallam Moors) will be closed for land management reasons, as allowed under the CRoW Act (2000) during the following dates in 2017:
Full details of the areas affected can be found by searching for 'Stanage' on the Natural England open access maps website and scrolling to the restrictions section at the bottom of the page.
These closures do not affect public rights of way (which remain open) or the concessionary paths to Stanage.
