Newcomers Climbing Meet - High Neb

Emily Pitts


The KMC newcomer meets are a great way to meet with the club and get climbing. This year the club have split the newcomer meets over two days and two crags to be sure everyone can come along and meet us (and hedge our bets with the British weather too!!) Today we are going to Stanage High Neb.

 

High Neb is a natural gritstone buttress in the middle of Stanage edge in the Eastern Peak District. It is the highest point at Stanage and is it is blessed with a large selection of good routes, and some very good ones too. The quality exists across the grade spectrum with routes as such a Quietus (E2), the infamous Kelly’s Overhang (HVS – yeah right!) and Neb buttress (VS). There are also a large number of good routes at lower grades, and a few for the hardy and brave too. Details of the crag can be found here:

The normal approach is to walk in from High Neb parking (detailed in the link above). We will aim to meet at the carpark 9.30am. Please note that the parking at High Neb can sometimes be very busy at weekends, and has led to lots of erosion along the road in recent years. Please park considerately.

 

If you are a newcomer and would to join us, please get in touch: meets@karabiner.org. See you all there!
