Scrambles in the Dark Peak : Easy summer scrambles and winter climbs, Paperback Book

Scrambles in the Dark Peak : Easy summer scrambles and winter climbs Paperback


Over 40 summer and winter scrambles are described with many links, variants and extensions to make up longer, more challenging days on the moors.

Routes are graded 1-3, from scrambly walks to difficult rock climbs and winter ascents, including classics such as Wilderness Gully East, Wildboar Clough and in the Roaches.

The easy scrambles are suitable for adventurous walkers with good fitness and navigation skills, harder routes require some rock climbing experience.

In winter conditions, Scottish winter grades 1-2/3 apply and crampons and ice axes will be needed.

The Peak District National Park contains a wealth of beautiful, interesting and often unexpected places to visit.

Being so close to the major cities of Sheffield, Manchester, Derby and Nottingham it has been a very important area for walking and climbing for over 100 years.

As a result, there are many well established footpaths criss-crossing the Peak District that provide reasonably straightforward access to the most popular locations and summits the area has to offer.
