It was said in Life On Hold that the grit crags of the peak district lend themselves to the modern style of highball ascent.

This list aims to encompass the long, the strong, the precarious and everything that gives a highball climber true grit.

All suggestions welcome, I will add to this list as I find them.

(I know a few aren't in the peak, but were worth adding)
