Lawrencefield is an old quarry, that has a couple of good sections of rock. While not being nearly as good as its neighbor to the north (Millstone Edge), it is still worth a visit or two. The great harry and great wall areas are really good.

Getting There 

From Hathersage head East on the A6167, after about 1 mile the road follows sharply round to the left. Park up either on the left before the turn or shortly after in the car park.

Follow the trail south (just before the sharp turn). You'll soon arrive at the first area.

Climb the faint cracks left of center. The climbing is delicate in places and needs a cool head as you gain height.There is little or no protection so make sure you are confident at the grade....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
