soph - Lead β - 23/Jul/14 with Lindy Smith

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.

dan gibson - 29/Jun/14 with michael porter

Very good value almost fell out of the start offwidth - maybe should have used chicken wing. Interesting top section as well!
monsteratt - Lead O/S - 07/Dec/13 with Nick Whimster, Andrew Abraham

This was a bit of a mission, an adventure and a quest all in one
