OK I only lead to HVS, but I'm finding I prefer many other climbing destinations to grit now a days. At the grades I climb a lot of the climbing either tends to be smearing slabs, vertical jamming / thrutching cracks or horizontal break to break climbing on slopers.
It just doesn't have the variety of moves you get in N Wales, West Penwith, Dunkeld etc. It tends to feel a bit forced / thrutchy and lacks the elegance I can find elsewhere.
Swanage or Stanage? Right now I prefer the former. (and this is coming from someone that used to love grit)
