Rock Climbing and Abseiling

 

Climb boldly on the grit-stone edges and outcrops that are the English Peak District, Britain’s oldest and one of the most visited National Parks in the world. The Peak District boasts some 10,000 of the best rock climbs in the UK, all for good reason!

From the Dark Peak of Kinder Scout, Bleaklow and Black Hill to the valleys of Edale, Longdendale, Crowden & Chew. The Eastern Edges of Stanage, Froggat and Curbar to the ridges of The Roaches and Hen Cloud. Finally, the deep Dales and Valleys of the river Wye, Dove and Manifold that are the White Peak. All this with Buxton positioned firmly at the centre.
