Author of the latest psyche-inducing climbing book, Grit Blocs, Dave Parry joins us at Depot Climbing Sheffield for an exclusive event on Thursday 17th November.  This event is free to attend, but spaces are limited, so book your free ticket asap to avoid disappointment!

Dave combines his love of climbing and passion for photography to create beautifully curated images of some of the finest climbers on the best lines around.  Dave will be sharing some candid stories of days at the crag with friends in this free, hour-long intimate event alongside a catalog of fantastic imagery.

You’ll get to hear rarely-heard, tall tales as well as more on the process of narrowing down all the incredible lines the gritstone has to offer into 100 selected problems in his latest book.  See the shots that didn’t make it and end the evening by taking part in a Q&A with the man himself.

Dave Parry; Tales from the Grit

With over a quarter of a century spent climbing on God’s own stone on the outcrops surrounding his native Sheffield and across the Pennines, Dave feels like he’s almost there on his journey to mastering the art of grit; slopey holds, and trusting marginal feet can be quite an acquired taste, but once you catch the bug, you won’t look back!

Join us for an evening of storytelling and see a selection of Dave’s favourite shots from a life spent on grit.

This is a FREE event, but as spaces are limited, you need to book a ticket.

Thursday 17th November, 19:30pm @ Depot Sheffield.

Grit Blocs

Grit Blocs was released earlier this year and is not just a labour of love, but a gift to those who love the grit!

Showcasing 100 of the finest climbs on gritstone outcrops, edges and quarries, it is a must-have for any keen climber who wants a daily dose of psyche for their coffee table.

With an emphasis on high quality, it includes the best blocs captured in beautiful images with detailed descriptions of the character of each boulder.  Whether you are a veteran gritstone climber or taking your first steps into the wonderful world of outdoor climbing, Grit Blocs is available in the Depot Climbing shop and on the night there will be a special offer and the opportunity to have the book signed by the author.
