Staden Quarry

Peak Limestone

A lovely trad limestone quarry in an idyllic setting. The rock quality varies but on some routes it can almost feel like natural limestone with pockets, cracks and even flowstone giving very pleasant climbing, uncharacteristic compared to the style of climbing in the average Peak limestone quarry.

The landowner of Staden has recently changed and the new landower's attitude to climbing is unknown. If visiting Staden to climb please continue to keep your impact low - park sensibly, remove litter, keep noise to a minimum - and demonstrate to the new landowner that responsible access will have no impact on their activities or local residents.

Restrictions apply from 21 May - 30 June.

Reason: Nesting Birds

Kestrels have been reported nesting at the left hand end of Joint Effort wall. Please avoid the leftmost routes here (Wooden Leg, Xenophobia, Suspiciat) to avoid disturbing them. There are no signs up yet (as of 21/5/22) so there may be people at the crag unaware - please pass on the message if possible. 

Parking and Approach

Park considerately at the bend in the road in the village of Cowdale - dont block gates, driveways or the road itself.
