Bamford Edge

UPDATE: Heavy rain is forecast from 6pm. The meet is moving to AWESOME WALLS in Stockport. See you there.


Bamford Edge

Bamford Edge is a glorious natural Gritstone crag that sits above the village of Bamford, halfway between the Hope Valley and Snake Pass. The crag has historcal significance thanks to the attention of John Dawes to the Salmon slab (E7) in the 1980's, and is home to the much photographed Gargoyle Flake (VS). The crag is also home to a long list of excellant quality routes right across the grade spectrum, and is blessed with epic views of the surronding countryside. It is a great place to climb and hang out. I have been here many times and is a place of real significance for me (a story for the pub maybe?). Its a great crag. Details can be found here:


We will aim to be climbing around 6pm but people may arrive earlier. Parking here is improving thanks to the forced elongation of the grass verge (cars, cars cars) but spaces do remain limited. Please park considerately. It is also possible that midges could attend the meet too. Please be prepared! Keep an eye on scribble for updates and forward me any questions that you have. See you soon climbers.
