Description 

Stanage is home to the Peak District's most famous bouldering. Scores of classic problems dot the slopes below the edge, with the majority concentrated around the Plantation area.

Getting There 

The boulders are located to the north of the trees. Park below in the car park and hike up the obvious 1/2 mile trail.

There are many beta variations, but all involve starting matched on the crimp rail, a creative foot placement, a desperate friction grab on the poor swell, and a lunge for the flat jug just below the lip.
