/ Please help! big wall climbing uk routes
can some one please help give me some nice vdiff or below grade routes for a big wall climb in the uk?
i live in Sheffield around the peak district, as far as i know there biggest you can get there are around 20 to 25 meters.
please help by giving me a few nice routes, please include the area and any information i may need to get there, or about the climb!
i want to try something new.
Are you sure you mean big walls? Are you possibly getting it mixed with multi-pitch?
Apologies if this seems a bit obvious, but 100m doesn't really count as a big wall.
Assuming you mean "big long easy multipitch" rather than actual "big wall", I'd recommend having a look at Dan Bailey's Mountain Ridges books (Scotland and England Wales & Ireland) which are full of stuff from easy scrambles up to low to mid grade rock routes. There's plenty to inspire you in there.
There's plenty of long routes, over 100m and in your grade, in North Wales, The Lakes and Scotland.
As mentioned above big wall routes generally refer to routes that tend to take more than a day.
Are you looking at this as training for the Troll wall, by any chance?
You seem confused, do you want to do a long VDiff, or a long aid route? Plenty of the former in the UK but not the latter.
PS "Big Wall" is usually used for routes that takes several days to complete rather than anything to do (specifically) with the height and/or grade.
You need to get to wales/Lake district/Scotland.
'troll' wall indeed...
