Stanage Edge, Derbyshire Peak District © sheffylongjohn
The highest and most continuous section of the edge, some of the longest routes on natural grit (up to 23m). Unfortunately one of the most popular too (but fine mid-week). Many polished classics including, Heaven Crack (VD), Hollybush Crack (VD), Robin Hood Right-hand Buttress Direct (HS), Crack and Corner (HVD). Less polished are Congo Corner (HVS 5b), The Scoop (HVS 5a), Hargreaves Original Route (VS 4c). For thugs, Flying Buttress Direct (HVS 5b), Tippler (E1 5b) and Dangler (E2 5c) offer much sport.
Stanage Bus from Sheffield.
Car parking at Hooks Carr (SK 245830)approached from Sheffield or Hathersage.

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.
