Description

The Peak District National Park is probably the most popular climbing area in the UK, and with good reason. Only Yorkshire can compete for the amount of high quality climbing that is available to climbers of all abilities. The gritstone and limestone cliffs of the Peak District are all very easy to reach, and are relatively close to each other, with a few exceptions, which makes it very possible to enjoy several cliffs on a day visit.

With its proximity to the metropolitan areas of Manchester and Sheffield it has a tendency to get busy at the weekend, at all times of the year, however the shear number of climbs available mean you'll spend little waiting even for the very popular classics.

Getting There

Head towards Manchester or Sheffield, from there head towards the Peak District National Park. For the majority of the cliffs taking aim at the small village of Baslow, will mean you are within 15 minutes of the majority of the climbing (Both gritstone and limestone).
