This is a completely updated and revised edition replacing the 2002 Stanage guide - designed in the modern BMC format similar to that of Burbage, Millstone & Beyond the climbing guide now has excellent full colour photo-topos (running left to right) of all the buttresses, it describes over 1300 routes and over 400 boulder problems, has 140 full-colour action shots, Fontainebleau style bouldering circuits plus loads more; as if the place wasn’t busy enough already!
Stanage. Queen of the Eastern Edges. The finest crag on Grit. Where beginners come for their first grapples, and the top performers crank the hardest problems. Mile after mile of perfect rock, containing some of the best routes and boulder problems in the country, whatever the grade. Where busy VDiffs, heart-in-mouth highballs, desperate power problems, lonely leads and warm summer solos all sit shoulder to shoulder. The country's favourite crag.
And here is a guidebook to match. A guide that reflects the richness and diversity of this great crag. Whether you are a first time visitor after the famous climbs, or a long time local after something new, this guide will take you to the places you want to go, and show you so much along the way.
