Best Places to Boulder in the Peak
With winter setting in and the nights drawing close, I think it’s time to consider bouldering as an outdoor option that eats less time and helps you to avoid frostbite in the chilly weather. Here are our Peak District Top Tips:
Best Peak Bouldering venues
1. Curbar // Top Tier // Right Hand Side
3. Brownstones // The Two Steps area and Ash Pits Slab
A great location, just north of Bolton with 171 boulder problems listed on UKC. The Two Steps area and Ash Pits Slab, provide a whole raft of excursions from font 3 upwards.
4. Roaches // Top Tier
The setting for these boulders is absolutely stunning. The walk in takes around 20-25 minutes and the results of your effort are paid back a million fold by the breathtaking views and the quality of the boulder problems – lots in the lower grades of V0-V3.
5. Stanage // Far Right
6. Froggat // Top Boulders
