Peak District Rock Climbing
Birchen Edge, Saturday 27 July
This is a rock climbing meet to Birchen Edge, on the eastern side of the Peak District. It is targeted for Saturday 27 July but will be moved to Sunday 28 July if the weather is clearly better for that day.
The rock is gritstone and the venue is highly popular due to the high number of excellent quality low grade routes, thus making this meet ideal for the beginner climber. Details of the crag can be found at: https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=94
Access: Parking is in the National Trust car park, next to the Robin Hood pub (which undoubtedly become handy later in the day). From the carpark walk up the road (away from the pub) a short distance to a track that shortly leads to a gate. From there a well formed sandy track leads up to the crag.
For those who like maps: OL16, The Peak District (White Peak). The grid reference for the carpark is SK 281721.
I aim to be at the crag by 10.00am and will be at the Trafalgar Wall in the first instance.
If you have any queries, don’t hesitate to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org or 07903 399-129.
I will update this notice and post a scribble a few days days before the meet to confirm the actual day.
I hope to see you at the crag!
