258 Stanage Edge from Hathersage

This is a walk into bandit country to visit the secret cave of everyone's favourite outlaw, Robin Hood. And there are still some great characters up here for, with over 500 routes, Stanage Edge is a rock climbing Mecca. Then, as a change from admiring their gymnastics, you can watch the brilliantly coloured sails of hang gliders and paragliders before descending to pay your respects at the grave of Little John, Robin Hood's henchman, and the biggest outlaw of them all.
