Rocksport Top Ten Grit Routes ticklist

contributed by cheque Oct/18

At some point in the sixties Rocksport magazine apparently published a list of the ten best routes on grit, all around the HVS grade. You can tell it was the sixties as one of the routes is a girdle.

In the nineties the selective guide On Peak Rock updated seven of the eight Peak District selections (they only kept Suicide Wall) with some much harder ones, so you’ve got some to do once you’ve ticked the original list.
