16m. The left-hand of the trio of cracks is of an awkward width throughout and, to add to the fun, the exit is tricky too. © ROCKFAX

31/31. It was unplanned but remarkably appropriate that the last route of the day was squirming up a sqeeze chimney to the narrow slit of daylight above. Topping out into the sun was very satisfying; knowing it was over even more so!
Nick Russell - 2nd - 21/Jul/14 with Alex Winter

31 on Staffordshire nose. 5:20pm.

Very good value almost fell out of the start offwidth - maybe should have used chicken wing. Interesting top section as well!
