Trip Report: Peak District August 2013

This summer the squad made a couple of trips to the Peak District in Derbyshire. Each group had 3 days in which to try out as much of the hallowed grit as possible.

We started out with some bouldering at Burbage South where everyone was introduced to the difference between V0 at a climbing wall and V0 on Grit! After a few attempts people started to get used to it and the grades soon started to ascend.

The next day was spent at Stanage. Ropes were quickly set up and everyone enjoyed a day climbing some fantasic routes on ropes before heading off to the plantation boulders before dinner.

A bit more activity at the plantation and trackside boulders finished off the trip the next day before everyone fell asleep on the bus home.
