About the Event
Staffordshires very own Roaches are a must for any aspiring trad climber. There are loads of routes at all grades on excellet grit stone. This meet will allow groups to meet to climb, boulder or walk, depending on preference. Climbers will need to know how to safely belay as a minimum. No formal tuition will be given but advice and experience is always willingly shared. Approach notes
The Roaches is situated to the east of the A53 between Buxton and Leek. At busy times, it is necessary to park at Upper Hulme, on the A53, from where the local council provides a bus link to the crag. At less busy times, parking is available on the road below the crag but please park considerately. From here, a well-worn path leads to the two main tiers past the conspicuous Rockhall Cottage (the Whillans Memorial BMC hut).
The Club recognises that climbing, hill walking and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions.
