Amber Valley

The picturesque Amber Valley has a series of well-hidden outcrops buried in amongst varying levels of undergrowth. There is nothing of any great quality here but some good isolated problems especially in the harder grades. Three crags are covered: Cocking Tor, Turning Stone Edge and Bradley Edge - the first two have some decent routes if you want to combine your visit with a bit of roped climbing. They can easily be visited in a single session although prepare to spend a bit of time bashing your way through the bushes on your first visit. The more open Cocking Tor and Bradley Edge suffer from bracken in the summer, whereas it is the dense rhododendrons that smother Turning Stone Edge. The area doesn't lend itself well to a circuit approach.
