Jetboil ZiP Review

It's taken a while, but I decided to splash out on a Jetboil. I wasn't keen on spending quite a lot on a SOL Ti, and I'm glad I resisted. I went for the ZiP model, but was it money well spent?

Froggatt Edge......finally!

There are a series of edges, all following a similar geological path to the east of the village of Hathersage in Derbyshire. The edges are in the Dark Peak section of the Peak District and include Stanage Edge, Millstone Edge and Froggatt Edge. These three edges have been popular for many years, for more than one reason. Firstly, they were quarried for their grit stone to make millstones. The more recent is as a place for rock climbers. These edges see a lot of climbers, I myself having climbed at Stanage on numerous occasions, albeit many years ago. I've previously walked both Stanage and Millstone Edges, but not Froggatt Edge. I cured that shortfall at the weekend.
