So (adult) beginner friendly routes at Froggatt, not too sporty people.

Gamma, slab recess, heather wall, maybe trapeze?

Any other recomendations?

Sunset Crack perhaps if they're going well? Cave Route, if they're up for the crux first moves, and there's also Solomon's Crack at the far end for a traditional outing.

Heather Wall, Solomans, Slab Recess, Slab & Crack, Beta. They all tend to be a bit busy though.

... our views are below. Curbar far left also has quieter routes: Beech Gully is a great starter and better than it looks.

If the weather is nice perhaps a wander down to Brookside Buttress for Tinsel's Tangle and/or Crooked Start?

Suggesting it more on the strength of the location than the routes tbh, it's pretty down there and can be a welcome escape from the crowds if the main crag is busy.

Maybe a bit hard? Brookside Crack (if you cheat on the R at the start) and Brookside Gully are OK.

I cant see us getting on anything like sunset crack to be fair... i dont imagine any of them will have a natural affinity to climbing

Agree, please don't take them on Sunset Crack.

Why not take them to Burbage?  Loads more to do, surely, very un-intimidating (if that's a word; probably isn't!)

Just a bit more convenient from work and one requested Froggatt

Very close to Froggatt on Curbar there's Pillar Slab
