Baslow Edge

Eastern Gritstone

Baslow is a quiet little back-water, lacking any of the great grit classics of its near neighbours, it has long been a neglected venue, mainly frequented by explorers looking for an escape from the crowds that inhabit the cliffs further north. The fact that we saw fit to leave it out of the first edition of Peak Gritstone East speaks volumes, clearly pointing to the fact that it is the least significant of all the outcrops between Stanage and Chatsworth. Despite this, Baslow is worthy of a visit or three, for a little peace and quiet.

*** if you want to climb flat world*** at the southern end. Between the boulders at the bottom of the chimney there is a birds nest. My partner was trying to climb down via the chimney and almost stood on them ! No harm to them but try laying backing off the slab to down climb instead.
