STANAGE HIGH NEB


Stanage has routes of every grade from the easiest of bumbles to climbs at the limit of human ability. It also has climbing of every style and there is enough here to keep most climbers ticking over for at least half a lifetime. A trip up the long bracken-covered slopes to sample the delights of the High Neb region of Stanage will be rewarded with some great classics and sometimes slightly less overcrowding than on the other sections.
