“Stunning scenery, ideal for a bracing winter walk”
Review of Stanage Edge

Reviewed 18 January 2014

My eldest son has climbed here regularly, so I was looking forward to watching some climbers but when my youngest son and I visited - a blustery weekday in January - the area was completely deserted. We parked near Outseats (for free) and, after following a short footpath across the fields and past scattered Millstones (including one with a smiley face) we were able to scramble up to the top of Stanage Edge, following it northwards until we crossed to the other side of the A57, looped back past Redmires Reservoir (where we noticed a handmade poster asking if anyone had lost a camera in the area as one had been found), and returned via Stanage Pole. The entire walk was about 10 miles and very boggy in places. There were some beautiful views, though in places the moors were quite bleak, and I look forward to returning in warmer, drier weather. As other reviews have said, take your own refreshments: we did not pass any cafes or shops.

Stanage is the place to go for single pitch rock climbing. It has well over 1000 climbing routes and hundreds of boulder problems. There is generally parking available though you will need to get there early. Enjoy the grit, don't worry that it is popular - that's a bonus. There is more than enough to go around.

Every easy to access with ample parking. Views are simply amazing especially at evening time on a clear day. Always busy with climbers still climbing when its dark.
It would be worth taking some food or a picnic with you as there are no shops near by.

Easy to reach and easy to walk up to the edge. We went on a lovely sunny day, so views were excellent. It is very popular with walkers and climbers so don 't expect a quiet walk.

Me and my partner walked along the Stanage Edge, absolutely fantastic views and great fun watching the climbers, take a picnic and find a nice place to sit and admire the views, it can be a bit windy, so pick your day.
