The eastern side of Peak District is home to one of the most iconic climbing locations in the country. Stretching for 30 miles from Wharncliffe, north of Sheffield,  to Shining Cliff, south of Matlock is the world-famous gritstone. The nucleus of this consists of the classic edges, including the ever-popular cliffs of Bamford, Stanage, Froggatt and Curbar. There are many lesser edges, plus a rather fine set of quarries, which are virtually all in west-facing hill-top situations. Escape from the city is easy and great sunsets are a given – there is little wonder that Sheffield has become the home of choice for so many climbers.


The full guide is available on Rockfax Digital

The third edition of the UK’s best selling guidebook is now available. The original 2001 version arguably changed the format of guidebooks forever. A significantly revised edition was published in 2006 with 100 extra pages and 900 extra routes – 2950 in total.

This latest edition has been expanded with more coverage of the main cliffs and the inclusion of many of the minor venues that were left out last time. It now comes out at a massive 560 pages with over 4000 routes!

All the cliffs have been rephotographed in glorious detail, every page has been redesigned and all the descriptions and grades have been checked against the UKClimbing databases and updated where appropriate. The book includes a superb set of inspiring action photographs from some renown photographers plus a plethora of graded lists. It is full of the kind of intimate knowledge that only comes from many years of climbing on these superb gritstone cliffs.
