Calder

Gritstone is bloody rubbish and I hate it.

Limestone is bloody brilliant and I love it.

Anyone who says different is just wrong. End of chat.

Best Climbing Experience
Evening's spent fending off midges in the quarries are the sort of experience that just can't be bettered.

Having said that, those occasions where everything just 'clicks' run it pretty close.

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Climbing is definitely harder for the tall. But that's not a discussion, it's a fact.
