Peak District Bouldering, 2nd ed 2011

Vertebrate Publishing


All approach, crag and problem information has been reviewed and revised since our first Peak District Bouldering guidebook (2005), and the authors have spent several years researching, writing and updating all of the established crags in the area, together with the many new crags that have risen in popularity or been developed in the last 5-6 years.

New crags have been added, including several which have never been fully documented in guides before, such as: the Derwent Edges, Bamford and Birchen Edge on the Eastern Edges; Beeley Hilltop, the Matlock Quarries, Turning Stone Edge and Black Rocks in the southern Peak; Gradbach Hill, Wolf Edge, New Mills Torrs, Tintwistle Knarr and Black Tor in the western and northern Peak; and Blackwell Dale, the Alport crags and Dove Dale on the limestone crags. The Churnet Valley bouldering has also been updated.

This guide features over 3,300 boulder problems on over 70 crags, both major and minor. Catering for boulderers of all abilities, there are over 2,150 boulder problems below Font 7a, and over 1,150 problems at Font 7a and above. Problems and their grades have been checked and double checked by many local climbers, with experience at all grades, to ensure as great an accuracy as possible across the grade range.

Each crag features detailed access and approach information, together with overview and topo maps. The guide features over 500 colour photo topos and is illustrated with action photography from some of the area’s best photographers, including Adam Long, John Coefield, Keith Sharples and David Parry.

International climbing legend Ben Moon has written the foreword, and there's a detailed Appendix which includes everything climbers need to plan a visit: Tourist Information Centres; cafés and pubs; campsites &  accommodation; gear shops; climbing walls; and useful websites
