Climb Name Type Grade # Ascents Recorded Notes Exclude Reason
Keen Roof Boulder problem 8B 32

Keen Roof is one of the most popular hard boulder problems in the peak district, and in the UK as a whole, largely due to it's roadside location and high number of ascents meaning beta is easy to come by.

7b in to 7B with a kneebar rest, followed by an 8a+ headwall.

To Bolt or Not to Be Sport route 8b+ 29
The Ace Boulder problem 8B 21

A low start to The Joker.

The holds are there, the holds are big, the moves are small, it's easy. Why is it so hard!? [1]

Cry Freedom Sport route 8c 15

This has been upgraded in recent guides yet no holds have broken since the FA and an easier sequence than Mark Leach's original nails method on the top crux was found. It has to be questioned why it went up from its original grade of 8b+?

Unjustified Sport route 8b+ 14

Originally climbed with a sika'd hold by Nic Sellars in 1992 and named 'Justified and Ancient', a song by The KLF. Then claimed as Yorkshire's first 8c after being reclimbed by Tony Mitchell without the sika'd hold. Subsequently an easier method looping out right was discovered, resulting in the route settling at 8b+
