High Tor

High Tor is the finest limestone crag in the Peak and is up there with any in the UK for the quality of its climbs. The Main Face is criss-crossed by a magnificent set of multi-pitch routes of stunning quality. The entry tariff for this feast is HVS, but once you get a foot in the door, have no doubt, you will be back for more. As well as the vertical lines, there are also some superb diagonals that sweep majestically across the face, linking unlikely weaknesses and prolonging the usual pleasure. Many of the pitches here are very big - ensure you bring a large enough rack and plenty of extenders. The far left-hand side of the Main Face has a few slightly easier offerings, as well as a set of butch routes that tackle the impressive overhangs. As an added bonus, there are also the wings - the Left offers routes as good as many of the other buttresses in this book, and the Right has a set of sport routes which, though not of the same quality as the rest, add to the appeal of the crag.
