Undisputed Peak Grit Royalty ticklist

contributed by cheque Apr/21

There are currently an incredible five guidebook sources available for Peak District gritstone trad, with the BMC, Wired, Rockfax, POD and Vertebrate all competing to make this the most heavily-documented climbing area on the planet.

All have their own systems of rating quality and, unsurprisingly, their own opinions of which climbs are the best. But here are the only 22 routes that are given the highest rating* in every guide.

*well, there’s another route that gets five stars in the Vertebrate book but that’s just silly
