The Peak District National Park is probably the most popular climbing area in the UK, and with good reason. Only Yorkshire can compete for the amount of high quality climbing that is available to climbers of all abilities. The gritstone and limestone cliffs of the Peak District are all very easy to reach, and are relatively close to each other, with a few exceptions, which makes it very possible to enjoy several cliffs on a day visit.
