[Mark Bathe on The Old Scoop, Stanage, 3 kb]16m. An earlier climb with the same name - odd! Climb the awkward slanting crack (crux) almost into Martello Cracks and then trend back up the left edge of the easy open scoop. © ROCKFAX
Renamed from "The Scoop" to the "The Old Scoop" in the BMC 07 guide

May have cheated. Possibly went too far right. but an overhanging mantle with rubbish gear seemed a bit of a stretch for VS.

Have to fess up to some early "help" from the second - found the start hard and he gave me a push to the buttock. I might not have needed it but better that than a fall!
Richard Gilbert - Lead dog - 26/Jun/10 with Alex Lambert

Apart from the crux start, rather an easy VS. Slightly disappointing.

Description says "almost into Martello Cracks" but I couldn't figure out how to mantelshelf without at least using the side/arete of the wide crack.
