Peak Bouldering



Already a member? Login

Great variety of crags and easy access makes the Peak area the country’s destination for boulderers. The main attractions are the superb and world-famous gritstone edges that stretch from Wimberry in the northwest, through the Eastern Edges and the Central Gritstone, and on to Staffordshire. The bouldering on offer on these is immense and varied, sometimes on the edges themselves, sometimes on the blocks dotted around beneath the crag. There is also some intense and dramatic limestone bouldering in the leafy dales.

The full guide is available on Rockfax Digital
More information


Peak Bouldering is the third edition of the Rockfax book. It is a completely new edition that is the latest recipient of the equal biggest Rockfax ever award – 640 pages covering over 4800 distinct problems and many more variations. The content represents a huge leap forward from the last book and brings the coverage up-to-date doing justice to the pace of development in the area in the last 10 years. The majority of the crags have been re-photographed, there are new maps, stunning new action photos and every problem has been re-assessed based on the feedback received on UKClimbing Logbooks.

Such is the extent of development that the book can’t come close to covering everything and we have focussed on the best and most popular. The Rockfax Digital version has around 20 extra less popular venues, plus lots of extra content on the crags covered. This will be added to as new areas come to light.
