SHINING CLOUGH


The best of the cliffs that fall under the broad banner of Bleaklow, a tall and remote cliff that is at its best on high summer days when the the cotton (grass) is high and the curlews mew over the plateau. Many of the climbs follow steep cracks, requiring a high degree of proficiency in jamming and many of the routes tend to be green and gritty at the start of the season or after wet weather.
