Hathersage to Stanage Edge Walking Route Details

Stanage Edge – or just Stanage, considering it means Stone Edge, making the first a tautological name (just don’t even get us started on M****t Snowdon!) – is a gritstone escarpment in the Hope Valley that’s exceptionally popular with climbers. For walking, it provides an airy walk along the top of the crags to the high point of High Neb (458m) – somewhat akin to a coastal walk without the sea – and a return beneath them. This route sets off from Hathersage, up towards High Neb and returning via Higger Tor.
