Quick Overview

  • Peak Rock is a celebration of significant developments at the cutting edge of rock climbing in the Peak District

  • From the day that James W Puttrell first set foot on rock at Wharncliffe in the late nineteenth century...

  • ...Through to modern day ascents on the area’s gritstone and limestone crags

  • Meticulously researched and written by a team of local authors

  • This is the story of the sharp end of Peak District climbing as told through the words of many of the Peak’s – and the world’s – top climbers

  • The late Giles Barker first started work on Peak Rock – then titled 'Peak Performance' – in the early 1980s

  • Phil and Graham brought in a team of experienced Peak District climbers drawing on their knowledge of specific developments

  • This resulting book is the most comprehensive to be published since Eric Byne and Geoff Sutton’s High Peak in 1966.
