Outdoor Climbing on Froggatt Edge
2 people attending
6 places left
A day's outdoor trad climbing at Froggatt Edge in the Peak District, suitable for those who already have some outdoor climbing experience.
Froggatt is a popular edge, with a fabulous view over the Derwent Valley. The cliff is relatively low lying which means it escapes the worst of the weather, faces the afternoon sun, and has many routes of a slabbier nature than is usual for gritstone. The main edge has a wide range of routes in the lower to mid grades as well as harder routes. Lots of 3* routes to choose from.
If you only have indoor lead climbing and lead belaying experience, availability of places on this event will depend on the availability of suitably experienced outdoor climbers. Please message the event leader to discuss, before registering.
As a BMC Affiliate member, Outdoorlads draws your attention to the fact that climbing is an activity with a danger of personal injury or death. You should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for your own actions and involvement.Please note that every person participating should be aware of (and accept) that those members perceived as ‘in charge’ or leading the event are not necessarily qualified, do not need to be qualified, and are not regarded by OutdoorLads, or themselves as ‘technical experts’ but are amateur climbers with some experience and who are happy to impart their knowledge. Any advice given should be considered with this in mind by the recipient.
What to bring
Harness, Rock boots, Belay plate and Screw gate karabiner, and a Helmet. If you have ropes, and climbing gear, please do bring.

You will need BOTH a helmet & harness to climb.
