A sort of Hard Rock for boulderers, showcasing 100 of the finest must-do boulder problems on the gritstone outcrops, edges and quarries of the Pennines.

The gritstone crags of Northern England are internationally renowned and are home to some of the best bouldering in the world. With an emphasis on high-quality photography, Grit Blocs presents a selection of the very best boulder problems in this area - covering the Peak District, Yorkshire, Lancashire and North East England.

The classic problems are there - Careless Torque on Stanage and Flying Arete at Almscliff - but, as the sport of bouldering continues to evolve, there are also lesser-known and newer gems to discover: Archery at West Nab, The Lash at Birk Gill and Ouzel Thorn at Thorn Crag, amongst others.

Stunning photography is accompanied by texts that expand on the context and characteristics of the boulder problem and give you an idea of what each problem is like, with a bit of bouldering history thrown in too.
