Peak Bouldering

Digital Update – We have concentrated on the print edition and, unlike with most of our recent books, we won’t be releasing a Rockfax Digital update at the same time as the print book appears. A complete update, including over 1000 additional problems on minor crags and buttresses, will appear later in September.

Great variety of crags and easy access makes the Peak area the country’s destination for boulderers. The main attractions are the superb and world-famous gritstone edges that stretch from Wimberry in the northwest, through the Eastern Edges and the Central Gritstone, and on to Staffordshire. The bouldering on offer on these is immense and varied, sometimes on the edges themselves, sometimes on the blocks dotted around beneath the crag. There is also some intense and dramatic limestone bouldering in the leafy dales.
