All the routes that get a mention in chapter 2 of Peak Rock. Routes from early 1900s to 1919, ascended by some of the top climbers of their day. Such as Herford, Jeffcoat, Laycock, Kelly and Berg, making the best use of the cutting edge equipment of the time ie hobnails and tweed! Not to mention a barefoot ascent of Scoop Face by Stanley Jeffcoat!
