The Black Rocks 1949 Guide VS Challenge ticklist

contributed by rockman Aug/14

The first main guide to Black Rocks by Peter Harding and Tony Moulam in 1949 listed all these climbs as VS in the days when protection was a sling and the odd jammed bit of metal or chockstone. If VS is your limit you will need to be climbing very very well!!!
