The Roaches (in the Peak District)

Geologist and keen climber Dr Tom Challands challenges a pair of young people each to climb a rock face and see just what can be revealed from this unique vantage point, on the rock face rather than observing from the ground.

The climbs are not only technically demanding but throw up different field study challenges for the team to solve.
This location is the beautifully eerie Roaches in the Peak District National Park, Staffordshire. Our climbers face damp conditions making their climb very slippy. They are faced with uncovering evidence which should tell them under which conditions The Roaches were formed and can they say if they are still the same way up?
