Longshaw and the Eastern Moors are home to some of the most famous and iconic crags in the country.  The rock, millstone grit, is known for the quality of the routes.  Whether you try scrambling on the boulders around Longshaw (please take care), or sign up to one of our climbing courses led by professional guides (see our what's on page for details), Longshaw’s a great place to try climbing.
