All Birchen Edge routes from the 1981 Derwent Valley guide. Having done the great majority back in the 80's it became a vague ambition to comlete them all. For this list Midshipman is the original HVS version - finishing R. Peaches gets a passing mention in the guide as an 'unsubtantiated claim' so isnt listed here.
