Crag features

Gibb Torr is the natural continuation of the Newstones - Baldstones ridge. It is best considered as a crag for the hard-core enthusiast. The problems are generally steeper than those on the Newstones - Baldstones edges and they tend to be hard and high.

The crag faces northeast and more significantly, faces a deep forest - this means green! Despite this, a good winter's session can be had if the weather has been dry. Landings are good, although there are a few boggy areas.

Approach notes

Gib Torr is situated very near a little road off the main A53 Leek to Buxton road. There is adequate parking for a few cars on the roadside from where the crag can be seen.

No Access Issues

The forested area to the east is gradually being cleared and returned to moorland and native woodland.

Doesn't see much sunlight and does tend to be green. the classic problems are usually clean though.
