STANAGE END


The greatest of all the gritstone edges, with over 4km of exposed rock, in a setting of magnificent grandeur. The rock is of impeccable quality and climbing is possible throughout the year, always bearing in mind the vagaries of our climate. Some sections of the cliff have been quarried in the distant past for the production of millstones, most notably the Marble Wall and Wobbler areas of Stanage End. The climbing here is characterised by clean-cut grooves and aretes and a sense of isolation uncommon on the other sections.
