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.
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.
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.
