Yorkshire 8b | 8a Sport route at Water-Cum-Jolly


A bit tongue-in-cheek. Australian climber Geoff Weigand visiting Yorkshire at the time insisted that all the f8a+ routes in Yorkshire were in fact f8b. The fact that Weigand had never climbed f8b had nothing to do with it. Things being what they are, we all know that routes in the Peak are much harder than their counterparts in Yorkshire, hence Yorkshire F8b was in fact only F8a+! [1]
