For climbers there's the Dark Peak AKA multiple Gritstone edges to smear or jam your way up as well as its opposite number The White Peak hosting many Limestone crags to slip and slide around on. Just too many to mention here but no doubt some members will head to Stanage! So with that in mind this article is worth a read! :
Eastern Grit across the grades
Walkers have endless miles of open moorland to explore in and around the Hope Valley with
Kinder Scout and Edale nearby for some spectacular hiking views.
We will be staying at Hardhurst Farm Campsite in Hope (£7pppn) which has its own cafe onsite for an artery clogging breakfast and just a short stroll away to the Travellers Rest pub for that all important end of day refreshment.
Far too many climbing guides to list here so if your in need of a guide then I'd google the following guide publishers : Rockfax, BMC, Vertabtrae and the Climbers Club who all produce guides for climbing on Grit, Limestone, bouldering as well as Off Road biking routes in the case of Vertabrae!
