Rock Climbing

Banner-Climbing.jpg

The Peak District has some of the most challenging and popular rock climbing routes in Europe including the internationally important Stanage Edge, near Sheffield and the Roaches in the Staffordshire Moorlands. No one knows the exact number of recorded climbs in the Peak District; it exceeds 10,000...

Many world-class climbers live in and around the area, sharpening their skills on its challenging cliffs, edges and boulders. Regardless of whether you are an enthusiastic beginner or world-class athlete, there are plenty of crags for you to discover in the Peak District.

Take the next step:

For the beginner an indoor climbing wall offering instruction can be a good starting point or an outdoor activity provider who can show you the ropes. If you enjoy climbing indoors you'll probably love climbing on real rock!

The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides up-to-date information on crags, along with the latest news on seasonal access, restrictions, disturbance of wildlife and advice on how to start climbing outdoors.

The Peak District enjoys an extensive public transport network, enabling you to have a full day out exploring the area without using the car.

Also, check out these ambassador centres who offer rock climbing opportunities.
