Event Description

Hello, planning on trying Froggatt Edge, weather dependent. If it does not look good we will look elsewhere for wherever is dry. Not sure whether it'll be bouldering or trad, so bring both rack and matts.

Description:-

The main edge is a virtually continuous face of exceptionally clean and quick-drying rock of the highest quality up to 17m high. Both natural and quarried buttress exist, giving a variety of climbing styles, although the edge is home to some of the best slab climbing in the country.Work your way along the grades with Sunset Slab (VS 4b), Three Pebble Slab (E1 5a), Long John's Slab (E3-ish 5c), Downhill Racer (E4 6a) to finish up the superb Hairless Heart (E5 6a). Popular routes are polished and weekends often busy. An excellent sun-trap on winter days. Best routes: Valkyrie (HVS 5a) and Beau Geste (E7 6c).
