Peak District

As a club we normally visit the trad Gritsone crags as many people feel they are better than the bolted limestone.

The Peak is the place where freshers trip is held every year in late October or Early November.

When we go to the peak we normally camp, staying at the Hope campsite or the Travellers Rest at Matlock.

The crags in the peak are quite varied, but mostly single pitch, Stanage is the longest crag in the country (or at least I think it is) and made of the famous Grit stuff!

Gritrash can often be optained by rubbing bare skin against the rock, it's not advised however a large number of people do it.

Other crags include, Burbage, Lawrencefield and Millstone.
