Stanage is home to the Peak District's most famous bouldering. Scores of classic problems dot the slopes below the edge, with the majority concentrated around the Plantation area. From scary moderate highballs to futuristic testpieces and everything in between, the Plantation represents the best bouldering on grit.

Getting There 

The boulders are located to the north of the trees. Park below in the car park and hike up the obvious 1/2 mile trail.
