There is some excellent climbing on the edges which flank Kinder Scout, such as Nether Tor, The Pagoda and Ashop Edge.However, most of these edges are high so climbing on them tends only to be feasible in spells of good weather.Fortunately, Edale is surrounded by a whole range of other gritstone edges, all within easy reach and mostly at a lower altitude than those on Kinder. The limestone climbing of the White Peak is not far away either.The southern end of Stanage Edge


The most famous of the Gritstone edges is Stanage, which has over 400 routes described. Most weekends this is thronged with climbers of all abilities.
