May 2012 sees the publishing of the first single volume guidebook to Peak Limestone to have hit the shelves for many years. The last edition of Northern Limestone included much of Yorkshire too, this time round the Peak District gets its own dedicated coverage, with Yorkshire to follow. The book features expanded photographic coverage of the classic venues of Stoney, Cheedale and Water-cum-Jolly plus all the southern crags around Matlock, Dovedale and the Manifold Valley.The many routes that have been put up in recent years are included, plus a reassessment of the classics. On top of this there are a number of recently developed quarries that have become a magnet for sport climbers, including the ever-popular Horseshoe and Masson Lees. The striking crag-shots are backed up with full route descriptions and a superb set of action pictures that should inspire even the most jaded grit guru.
With a variety of crags and easy access all this is possible in the Peak area. The main attractions are the extensive gritstone crags that stretch from Wimberry in the northwest, through the eastern edges and the central grit crags, and on to Staffordshire.
This book provides a compact and low cost introduction to the brilliant climbing found in the NE Peak Area. It is presented in the same clear and easy-to-follow style that make Rockfax publications but it has been stripped down to give just the essentials required by many climbers.
Together with Peak NE , Peak SE Pokketz from Rockfax is a great introduction to climbing in the Peak District, both on Gritstone and Limestone. The routes covered represent the very best on offer in the grade range up to HVS - there are even a few E1's and E2's to whet your appetite.
The most comprehensive guide to bouldering in the Peak District ever published - This guide features over 3,300 boulder problems on over 70 crags, both major and minor all around the Peak District, catering for boulderers of all abilities.
