Oxford Street** E3 6b
[Gareth Hobson getting stuck in on Oxford Street (HVS 5a), Millstone Edge, Peak District, 2 kb]22m. The wide left-hand crack (a stiff HVS 5a pitch) leads to the cave; poor belays, it is better to press-on. A very hard move through the notch in the overhang (good gear but awkward to place - especially for the short) accesses the easier upper wall. © ROCKFAX
