I am getting together climbing gear so that I can take my 10 year old grandson climbing on Stanage. I have already some HB Quadcams (0;0.5;1) and rocks 9+10. For climbing on Stanage should I be buying more rocks or Wallnuts ? Or should I concentrate on buying additional cams? It is some 20 years since I last climbed so need your advice and I will be taking an instructor with me when first starting. Happy New Year John
In reply to Blackbirdnest: A basic starter rack for grit I'd suggest would be a set of nuts, 5 quickdraws, a few cams (1,2,3), if you can afford them or otherwise hexes 5,7 and 9. Add a couple of slings and screwgates for belays. This should cover a good few easy routes but add more cams if you want as they are good when you are desperate.

In reply to gethin_allen: ok nuts 1-8, as already have 9 10. Will get the cams you suggested. Already have extensions. Thank you John
