Where jagged adventures, breath-taking scenery and sublime routes meet to give the wildest climbing on gritstone. This guide details all the crags from the Chew, Kinder and Bleaklow areas in one volume. Coverage stretches to the Glossop and New Mills areas with numerous quarries and secret outcrops as well as to the Saddleworth and Oldham areas.

This book will blow you away. It has taken the quality established by the recent grit guides – Froggatt, Stanage, Roaches – and applied it to the most uncooperative regions in the Peak, the distant boggy moors. The photography is excellent, the crags look fantastic, the text is inspiring and the grades are – get this – accurate.

When its too hot to climb in the valleys, you’re probably all wondering where you can go to escape the heat. So cast your eyes upwards and see the wild moorland of the Peak District shimmering in the sort of heat-haze more commonly seen in the Sahara. Kinder beckons, chinny reckon.
