Froggatt Edge Rock Climbing
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
, and all the routes on the The Great Slab
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.
