/ Recommend me a Peak District crag for tomorrow.
~ Ideally quick drying and gets (relatively) good weather. I've heard that the Eastern side is more often dry due to rain shadow effect.
~ A largish crag which will give big choice of routes.
~ Plenty of stuff in the lower grades (S to VS).
~ Interested to hear about Limestone or Gritstone crags, although Grit preferred as I've climbed a lot of Wye Valley Limestone already this year.
~ Coming up from Gloucestershire and then picking up partner in Birmingham, so nothing too far north unless you think it's really worth the extra mileage.
~ Links to crag logbook entries if possible.
Cheers in advance,
Go to Stanage or Froggat. Or perhaps the Roaches. Check the weather forecast first.
Pick routes with two or three stars.
If it's rainy or cold, go somewhere lower or more sheltered.
