A fully comprehensive guide to traditional gritstone climbing which covers the whole of the Peak District national park. It features over 2,000 carefully selected trad routes graded from Moderate to E10.

This guide is split into three sections: Eastern Gritstone – extending from Wharncliffe Crags down to Black Rocks; Staffordshire Gritstone – including The Roaches; and Moorland Gritstone – from the Chew Valley to Kinder. Alongside nationally significant crags such as Stanage and Froggatt edges, there are many smaller and equally brilliant venues with their own unique features, such as the wild moorland edges of Kinder Scout, or the urban quarried grit at New Mills Torrs.

Each crag features detailed access and approach information, including GPS coordinates for parking and crag grid references, together with conditions information and local knowledge. Alongside superb action photography there are over 400 colour photo topos, plus overview and topo maps. A detailed introduction includes everything you need to plan a visit: tourist information centres, cafes and pubs, campsites and accommodation, gear shops, climbing walls and useful websites.
