Burbage Bouldering © Dan Arkle
The valley boulders at Burbage offer some of the most friendly bouldering around. The landings are excellent and nothing gets too high. The problems tend to be slabs with some rounded arêtes thrown in. It lacks steep power problems but there are plenty of those elsewhere.
The Burbage South Valley Boulders are situated above and below the main Burbage Valley track. This is best approached from roadside parking on the A6187 above the Fox House pub. From here, locate a stile and follow a (sometimes muddy) path across the moor to arrive at the top of the South Quarry. Walk down a path between the two quarries which leads down and across the moor to the boulders.
Green Drive - There is a very limited parking spot (about 5 cars) at the end of the main valley path. Walk up the Green Drive to the boulders.
The Peak Bouldering Rockfax is a massive book covering a huge area including all the main bouldering venues of the Peak District. It includes many more low-grade problems than have ever been documented before including 17 circuits with problems at V0+ 5a and under, and a further 21 circuits with problems at V2 5c and below.
