Peak Rock/11/Gritstone in the Seventies. ticklist

contributed by Bloke on a Rope Jan/14

All the routes from chapter 11 of Peak Rock, from early to mid 1970's. Proctor and Livesey started to develop 'head pointing' in order to push their grades, while climbers like Pat Littlejohn,Mick Fowler and Stevie Haston continued to push the 'ground up' tradition. Right at the end of this period Alan McHardy did Edge Lane E55c ground up and pointing the way to the future! Also i'm aware Almscliff ain't in the Peak but the routes are so good i had to include them!
