More information

With a variety of crags and easy access all this is possible in the Peak area. The main attractions are the extensive gritstone crags that stretch from Wimberry in the northwest, through the eastern edges and the central grit crags, and on to Staffordshire. The range and concentration of the bouldering is immense and varied, sometimes on the edges themselves, sometimes on the blocks dotted around and beneath the crag. As an additional attraction, there is some intense limestone bouldering with fingery eliminates and powerful stamina traverses. This book has all you need to choose and find the best areas for you, and to get the most out of your visits. It has enough bouldering to last most people a lifetime.

Peak Bouldering brings everything together in a massive 544 pages. There are 3394 distinct problems described on 66 separate crags. We have also included over 60 bouldering circuits which are pitched at a relatively low level with 17 dedicated to problems at f4+ and under, and a further 43 circuits set at a harder level. 

The book doesn’t cover all of the bouldering on offer in the Peak – that would be almost impossible for a single book. Eliminates and combination problems are only included where they are popular, and sit-down starts tend to be mentioned as add-ons to most problems unless they are particularly significant. There are also plenty of small areas that there hasn’t been room to include, but many of these are of only of minor interest.
