Cave Dale

Peak Limestone

A minor climbing venue in a small valley running approximately north-south, with routes up to 20m long on both sides of the valley. A tourist honey pot makes a midweek visit preferable. Most popular for a handful of boulder problems. Routes of interest; Dargai crack (VS 4b)- climbed in 1898, and Southern Accents (E6 6c).

The majority of the climbing is on buttresses fairly close to the path running through the valley and there have been no access problems to date. 

Hole Dancer cave is the exception, being over the north ridge of the valley just west of the castle. The slope beneath this crag drops away at a point directly above the entrance to Peak Cavern show cave. To avoid the risk of stone fall it is asked that visits here are only made outside of the show caves opening hours.
