Climber at Stanage Edge
  • 1 Stanage Edge. This gritstone scarp is a good hiking and climbing area, with great views and innumerable climb sites. It stretches for five miles, best accessed from the south: from Hathersage railway station walk up The Dale for a couple of miles, or use one of the several car parks.    
  • 2 Burbage Edge is the southern extension of Stanage Edge, where a mixture of natural edge and past quarrying have left dozens of climbing routes. Best visited early evening. The nearby boulders can be used for practice by less experienced climbers. Walk there from Fox House Inn on A6187, which has buses from Hathersage and Sheffield. if driving, use the large car park off Ringinglow Road, which climbs up from Hathersage and across the moor to meet Eccy Road in Sheffield.
  • 3 Millstone Edge on Sheffield city boundary is a former gritstone quarry with sheer walls blasted smooth by dynamite, so it's a challenging site. It's two miles to walk from Hathersage, or take a bus or park at "Surprise View car park" where A6187 pitches over the scarp.
