A beautiful dale of woods and waterfalls running away from the Rambler's Retreat. Amid much overgrown rock there are some buttresses of significant worth. Lord's Buttress offers a handful of excellent routes on good quality sandstone making them worth carrying a rope for. The Long Wall and Gentlemen's Rock have become the domain of the boulderer and offer many good problems, especially of the horizontal nature. The buttresses are described in the order you would encounter them if you park at the Ramblers Retreat.
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.
|A fantastic little area with a lovely variety of style and grades. Nearly all in condition now.
Will be back here for sure.
