Peak Camp/Bivi plus Millstone Climbing - Scott Sadler
On the Saturday, my plan is to go climbing somewhere in the peak and either Bivi (not sure where yet) or camp at North Lee's campsite near Hathersage. It's a good location being only a 20min walk to Stanage edge and about 25min from Hathersage, meaning that a night out in The Little John is definitely on the cards!
What better way to cure a hangover, than a day a Millstone edge? This is a fantastic crag with a great selection of jamming cracks and bold arêtes.
If you're interested in coming along, either give me a call or just turn up. However, if you are thinking of camping at North Lee's then I would advise that you book in advance or contact me, as they can often fill up at the weekend.

Eastern Edges of the Peak District on good paths and tracks. Distance about 12 miles. The walk can easily be modified to suit the conditions.
This walk will also take us past the climbers giving digital camera people the opportunity to get some shots that could be shown at the slide comp.
