Rockfax Description
The imposing chimney is climbed on (very) polished holds to reach the balcony and a stance. Often green. Escape right across the top of the chimney or, better, finish through the overhang above the ledge by a couple of weird moves on jugs; S 4b. © Rockfax

Done as part of the 100 stanage stars ticklist. 43 routes in 15 hours. Absolutely exhausting, but what an achievement! Well done Ben and thanks!

Not particularly elegant - typical 1st climb of the day. Made a bit of a meal of this. In retrospect, not too bad. One or two trickier moves for the grade. Probably easier if chimney end it properly!

Andy lead the E1 5b (Broken Arrow) finish for his first E1 lead,

barrylong 24/May/09 Lead rpt

Still good, but the crux is surprisingly hard due to the scary polished nature of the footholds.

Felt quite hard for the grade. Maybe that's down to the polish?

Too polished and slimey for me today. Had a complete epic getting the gear back - abbed down to get it, then the rope jammed pulling it up which required another ab to free it. Epic fail! =o(
