STANAGE FAR RIGHT BOULDERING


Stanage Far Right has never really grown up enough to be considered a crag. With the exception of the Cowperstone and Apparent North Buttress, there are few documented routes on the jumble of blocks and boulders dotted around under the trig point at the southern end of Stanage. However, it is the closest bit of Stanage to the road and most people drive past it on their way to the other areas.
The problems are interesting and varied with perhaps the best being in the hard fingery traverse category. Hamper's Hang is a classic of its type and the chalk stripe along its lip can usually be clearly seen from the road. There are also some superb low roofs and plenty to explore for the easier grade boulderer.
