Grit for Aussies
4:51:13 AM
The entire english grading system is a little odd but it is reassuring to know that most routes on gritstone can be assesed on their comparitive safety from the ground as the routes resemble boulder problems more so than climbs :)

I tend to disagree (to quote a well-known ruckman).
I think that your statement is wrong in almost every respect.

I hold my opinions from having been climbing here in Sheffield for 4 months during winter (according to the locals the best time of year for the grit) and another two now in summer (which i prefer - less grip but at least ur muscles can warm up and stay warm).
I can only hold opinion up to the grade of E4 6a but during the time ive been here have been taken to a lot of crags by people who know the Peak and still love to climb there 'a lot' : )
I have to say that while my home rock of Gramps and Araps stil hold a place in my heart i have fallen in love with grit climbing : to qoute one of Australia's best women climbers " There's nothin like Grit !!!"

Anyone interested in getting a hit list of Grit and Limestone areas / routes that must be done around the Peak district (up to 45 min drive time from Shef) if based out of Sheffield UK for whatever amount of time u have available i am happy to provide it (sorry i check the forum infrequently)

I drove through shefield 3 weeks ago, and didn't even do 1 climb. And the climbing boots were in car also.

Guess I can't call myself a climber any more, huh?
