|This weeks route around Burbage Edge and rocks|
|Higger Tor and Carl Wark|
Higger Tor and Carl Wark
These two prominent gritstone
outcrops guard the western
edge of the Burbage Valley.
Carl Wark is topped with the
remains of what is thought to be
a Bronze or Iron Age hill fort.

This gritstone edge runs for
nearly two miles along the
eastern side of the valley. It
is one of the most popular
rock climbing areas in the Peak District.
