Definitive *** Peak Grit ticklist

contributed by cheque Apr/17

Every grit trad route given three stars in the current series of BMC Peak District definitive guides. Should keep you busy.

Robin Hood's Cave Innominate with Harding's Direct Finish and "Todycade" aren't listed as separate routes in the books or explicitly given three stars but both link-ups are described as being among the best routes on their respective crags so they're on here too.

The Neb Finish is only described as “a three star combination” when climbed in conjunction with Technical Slab- there isn’t a discrete entry on UKC for this though. Similarly the left-hand HVS start of Eye of Faith is described as “equally classic” as the E1 version but they share a UKC entry.
