1903 Peak Graded List ticklist

contributed by cheque Mar/22

E A Baker’s Moors Crags & Caves of the High Peak and Neighbourhood is a fantastic document of Peak District climbing at it’s very beginning, before any guidebooks had been published to the area.

In the chapter Scrambling on Derbyshire Crags, Baker gives “a list of the best-known scrambles… graduated according to their relative difficulty”. For not entirely persuasive reasons he leaves out routes from Wharncliffe and Staffordshire but, despite the title of the chapter, does include some routes from from Leicestershire (Breedon) and Nottinghamshire (The Hemlock Stone), all seven of which are now either banned or have been quarried away.

Fans of tutting about grade inflation will be pleased to note that the ancient definitions of Easy, Moderate & Difficult are nothing like those used today.
