Scrambles in the Dark Peak

Our Price

This guide will give you lots of great ideas to spice up a day out in the northern Peak, mainly but not exclusively up the gullies, streams & cloughs of Kinder Scout, Bleaklow & the Chew Valley. Many of these routes also make excellent easy winter climbs (up to Grade III)  and there are several winter-only routes in places like Mam Tor, Back Tor & Alport Castles. Plenty of the routes link together to give a fun longer day out and even those who know the Peak well will find some new possibilities here.

Who should use it - and why
