Climber on Valkyrie (5.9+), Froggatt Pinnacle.

Description 

Froggatt Edge offers fine climbing on a Sheltered South West facing cliff. The edge lies above the small village of Froggatt.

The gritstone on this edge tends to be a bit less gritty compared to some of the other edges, such as Stanage, and the Burbages.

The standout routes here are Strapadictomy, Beau Geste, Three Pebble Slab, Valkyrie, and all the routes on the The Great Slab.


Getting There 

The most common approach is from the North along the edge. Park at the carpark 600 yards south of The Grouse Inn, just off the B6054.

From the parking lot, head south, cross the road and pass through the white gate. Follow the wide footpath until you reach the crag.

It is about 1/2 mile to the first buttress and about 3/4 mile to the main climbing area.

On the arete- nothing but big holds left.  Chequer's Buttress

Chequers Buttress 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  Europe : United Kingdom : ... : Chequers Buttress
Classic, British Grade HVS 5a. Follow a ramp up right, head left up through the face and then out further left to the arete. Big reach to a huge hold gets you out on the exposed corner where it's jugs all the way up: not being able to reach this hold made it a more delicate affair, but still not too bad. Top out and build an anchor amidst the grazing sheep....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
