Great little Don Whillans boulder problem called The Villain on a fantastic crag called The Bridestones on the moors close to where I used to live. I managed to get a couple of hours bouldering there at Christmas.

Interesting to see this reappear - some life breathed into it.....

Here are some recent routes, both local to me here in Northumberkland and from a recent trip to Derbyshire - Stanage and cratcliffe Tor.

Thanks for the pics, Blakey!!

Grit is awesome. Grit, Flagstaff basalt, and Granite Mt and California granite...don't know which one is THE best, but they're all at the top of the list!

I have just started to acquire some missing copies of Mountain. This article seemed appropriate for this thread, albeit from 1973.

All of the rather dull caveats apply......

Squirmed up a few of those during my time in Sheffield. Still love those days on the grit.
