Topic - 19 Crags (Eastern Grit) in less than a day

Skinny on 24 Jun 2013
My climbing buddy and I are intending to tick every (main) crag in the RockFax Eastern Grit (the latest revision) in 1 day (or less). This equates to 19 crags, so an aim to climb 19 routes (1 on each) in less than 24 hours.

We've tried to pick a route at HS or above, with at least 1 star (according to the guide book), with the idea being to tick a route on every crag from Wharncliffe down to Black Rocks.

Starting out early (obviously), with some tactical parking to reduce down on the walk-ins. Taking the minimum of gear to each venue to lead then second (i.e. no solos).

Has anyone tried to do anything like this before? (I'm sure folk have) and does anyone have any suggestions on how to make it slick? Gear up at the car? Drive between crags with harnesses and helmets on? Only eat pick n'mix? Stay tied together even in the car?

If anyone has any brilliant hints or tips (or other suggestions), then it would be good to hear.
