About Rivelin (OS):

Rivelin is a grit edge with about 100 routes and a quarry with about 50 more. The edge offers the best climbing, and is famous for it's NEEDLE, a 60 ft. pinnacle that goes at VS. Most of the routes are in the lower grades, and there are midge problems in the summer. Worth a visit.
