Climber on Valkyrie (5.9+), Froggatt Pinnacle.


Froggatt Edge offers fine climbing on a Sheltered South West facing cliff. The edge lies above the small village of Froggatt.

The gritstone on this edge tends to be a bit less gritty compared to some of the other edges, such as Stanage, and the Burbages.

The standout routes here are Strapadictomy, Beau Geste, Three Pebble Slab, Valkyrie, and all the routes on the The Great Slab.

Getting There 

The most common approach is from the North along the edge. Park at the carpark 600 yards south of The Grouse Inn, just off the B6054.

From the parking lot, head south, cross the road and pass through the white gate. Follow the wide footpath until you reach the crag.

It is about 1/2 mile to the first buttress and about 3/4 mile to the main climbing area.

This is a truly classic climb. Short, technical, powerful and spectacular.Start below the arete, and climb directly up the arete to the break. The start isn't too technical, but it will get your attention.Once at the break take time to place some good gear, and then reach out, way out, to the crack in the arete. Now go for it! One bomber cam will protect the crux moves up the arete.Climb first up the finger crack and when that finishes make a killer move up to a slopping dish on the are...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
