Description 

Gardoms Edge stretches for 3/4 of a mile, although not continuously. Despite some good climbs the edge is not very popular which means you'll have it often to yourself, even on weekends.

The trees at the bottom of the edge are often very close to the bottom, which leans a closed in feel to many of the climbs.

It faces west and can take a while to dry out after heavy rain.


Getting There 

From Baslow head east on the A621 towards Sheffield. Just over 1 mile out of Baslow you'll start to drive below the edge, which is on your right. As you near the point where the road cuts through the edge, park up on the left opposite the first section of rock.

Biven Crack (5.10b/c), excluding start. Route trends right to hand traverse, visible just to the right of the tree.

Biven's Crack 5.10b/c 6b 20 VII E2 5b  Europe : United Kingdom : ... : Moyer's Buttress
A bouldery start leads to jams and jugs in right trending crack up to a slopey, 10-foot long hand traverse. Exit right to early. The wall is slightly overhung, deceptively sustained thus pumpy, and a sandbag at 5.10b. Protection is very good, but make sure to protect the follower for the traverse, or they could take an uncomfortable swing. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
