All the routes from chapter 6 of Peak Rock. Now were talking! Routes by Brown, Whillans and members of the Valkyrie MC and Rock and Ice MC. In this period(40's and 50s)crack climbing techniques were properly mastered with routes like Elder Crack E25b and Right Eliminate E35c, and Joe Brown pushed his plimsolls to the limit on Great Slab E35b! Also the first roof routes were put up with The Sloth HVS5a, The Dangler E25c and Quietus E25c.
