Peak District Gritstone is a comprehensive guide to traditional gritstone climbing and covers the whole of the national park. Written by local climber Graham Hoey, it features over 2,000 carefully selected trad routes graded from Mod to E10.

Graham has been an active grit climber for nearly 50 years. He was a member of the British Mountaineering Council's guidebook committee for 20 years and since 1979 has been a major contributor to the iconic Peak District climbing guidebook series. Over his grit career and during the course of his research for this guidebook he has climbed 95% of the routes in this book (many more than once!) and has checked the rest closely. No other guidebook author has climbed as extensively on Peak District gritstone; his passion for the genre, knowledge of the routes and his attention to detail are evident throughout the text.

This guide is split into three sections: Eastern Gritstone - extending from Wharncliffe Crags down to Black Rocks; Staffordshire Gritstone- including The Roaches; and Moorland Gritstone- from the Chew Valley to Kinder. Alongside nationally significant crags such as Stanage and The Roaches, there are smaller and equally brilliant venues with their own unique features, such as the wild moorland edges of Wimberry and Ravenstones, or the urban quarried grit at New Mills Torrs.

Each crag features detailed access and approach information, including GPS coordinates for parking and crag grid references, together with conditions information and local knowledge. Alongside superb action photography from Mike Hutton, Adam Long, Keith Sharples and more, there are over 400 colour photo topos, plus overview and topo maps. A detailed introduction includes everything you need to plan a visit: tourist information centres, cafes and pubs, campsites and accommodation, gear shops, climbing walls and useful websites.
