HARD GRIT is a 90s classic grit freeclimbing film. Lots of people have asked me about it and about the differences between gritstone and Victorian climbing. There's a clip on YouTube of the heart-stopping fall off Gaia in the Peak (Curbar).

You need broadband, or else wait while it loads. Consider buying the whole DVD if you can get it: it is inspirational and it would be good to see sone $$$ go to those film-makers.

For the record, both countries offer equally thrilling climbs, despite the arguments people sometimes start up! Grit is short but intense.

If they are going to steal a Slackjaw film, they could at least label the route correctly. The route is Johnny Dawes's 'Gaia' at Black Rocks!

What a f u cked comment.

As an outsider looking in it seems to me that the people doing the hard, bold stuff in the UK state it very seriously and that circumstances of most cutting edge bold ascents are very carefully considered and certainly not reckless. Boldness is not everyones bag, but don't pour shit on the poor old poms because its not your cup of tea.

Look out for E11 a film about Dave Macleod (Scottish) and his route Rhapsody (trad climb with the equivalent of F8c+ climbing) on Dumbarton Rock, near Glasgow. If big falls onto snapping RP's are your bag then you'll like this. Saw him lecture last night at Leeds Uni in Yorkshire, England and he's most definitely not dumb and full of life.
