All the climbs in chapter 5 of Peak Rock, from the start of WW2 1939 to the early 1950s. During this period Peter Harding and Tony Moulam developed the use of hand jamming and started wearing plimsolls to climb routes like Goliath's Groove HVS 5a, Suicide Wall HVS 5b. Also Karabiners were first used on the Promontory Traverse E2 5b.
