Harborough Rocks

Harborough is a popular cliff tucked away in the southern Peak and made from heavily pocketed and solid dolomitic limestone. It is a good place for beginners to experience a first hit on real rock, and a popular spot for more experienced climbers to exercise their muscles and do a bit of soloing. Ticking the whole crag in a session was a good work-out until the roof-crack in the cave was added in 2009!The routes tend to be steep and fingery so the grades can feel quite stiff. Many of the routes are rather polished, though this is hardly surprising after 100 years of regular usage, and it is popular with groups. The outlook over the High Peak Trail and the grassy base make it a good spot for a picnic although the proximity and noise of the factory detracts a little.
