About Plum Buttress (OS):

One of the most impressive pieces of rock in Derbyshire! The climbs are almost all classics, Big Plum and Sirplum, just to name a couple. About 20 routes at 200 feet, E1 and upwards, with one classic VS. The climbing is very "out there", northwest facing and exposed, great for a summer's evening to round out the day. Should exhaust you completely.
Nearest town or city: Buxton
Directions: OS 119 GR SK 115 726 Alt. 288m
3.5 miles east of Buxton. Travel east from Buxton on the A6 for two miles until you reach the parking area on the left. Walk upstream and cross on the footbridge, continue for another mile until the first LARGE buttress is seen across the river. Cross just upstream from it and walk back down to this beautiful crag.
