This is all the routes from chapters 7 and 8 of Peak Rock. I've added these chapters together because there from around the same period and cos it makes for a chunkier list.First up Biven and Peck started out on the grit putting up classics like Moyer's Buttress E15b and Congo Corner HVS5b, then they turned their attention to the limestone and were instrumental in developing aid climbing. I've only included routes that actually went free during this time. The next set of routes were put up by Brown,Whillans and the Rock and Ice MC in the late 50's on grit and by Steve Read,Roy Leeming and others on the limestone. The top climbs from this time were The Rasp E25b, Sentinel Crack E25c and Cave Wall E35c.Again some cunning rope tricks were used on routes like Ramshaw Crack E4 6a and Crack of Gloom E2 5b but i've put them in anyway cos they didn't include out and out aid moves.
