Up to the lip, failed to commit to the jam and ran out of juice. Hung around abit then abseiled to retrieve gear... :(

Brown 27/May Lead

I was starting to feel tired and then I met the jams. Who could fall off jams like those? It turns out that Stu had that skill.

A real gnarly route. Had to rest on the rope to remove some cams.

Cool route. The moves up to the bottom of the crack are pretty cool and juggy. But the pull up over the crack felt hard. An intermediate foothold below the lip helped on my successful attempt

David Kay 29/May/12 Lead dnf

Pumped out placing gear at the lip and fell off. Will come back with stronger arms + more determination.

Absolutely brilliant!! Perfect jugs, gear and the bobby dazzler of jamming. Not the beast it looks as the jams are so perfect/easy, it is just fairly steep.

Couldn't get past the crux of that overhanging crack... great jugs up to that point.

Lead on a number of occasions, once with Martin ..... from Huddersfield. Last time left it too late in year and traverse was wet and rested(with Mat Allatt) If it was at Stanage would always be in the mags!
