Rockfax Description
A good powerful line through the underlaps. An old bolt protects the crux, which is easier for the tall. After that it gets very pumpy, though on big holds. © Rockfax

First tried this three years ago aged 15, but I couldnt remember much so it was a bit of a retro-flash. Very pleased to do it first go today as wet crux holds made the sequence even harder!

Stoney Boy 04/Aug/14 Lead β

Happy to get this iconic and historical Stoney classic. Holds are still crumbling so will will get harder again in time. The finish is is becoming unpleasant due to brambles and a lack of traffic which is sad but somehow adds to the experience. My first proper E5 in 20 years.

Ground Up. Fell from crux twice. Not really reachy just requires strong fingers. The rest is really juggy and quite steady

New confident inspiring bolt is now in place. Climbed ground-up.

Amazing route, shame the crux is so hard! Did the crux move after a few rests on the rope then did the rest clean, really fun steep climbing.

Now it seems to have a shiny new bolt in place of the old one.
