Eastern Grit (2015)
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.
