Peak Rock/4/ Universities,Teams and Clubs in the 1930's ticklist

contributed by Bloke on a Rope Jan/14

All the routes in chapter 4 of Peak Rock. This ticklist is routes put up and repeated by the Sheffield CC, Sheffield Uni MC, Nottingham MC and the Manchester Uni MC. A couple of major achievements from that time were Colin Kirkus' ascent of Kirkus corner which went unrepeated for 10 years and Elliott's Wall End Slab Direct which is now graded E25b! Also climbing specific training became more popular, with Frank Burgess being able to perform 1 arm pull ups! GRRR!
