Mark spent ages hanging on the rope to get a cam out and couldn't. I abbed down and managed it after another 10 mins. But decent climb - well worth doing.

Really enjoyed smilers corner! Shame about the grass, Standing stones needs more traffic as it is a great place to climb!

Good route, worth 2 stars, with another due if it loses the remaining grass!

Ben took lead, but took a gear stipping fall from 2/3s height! Pulled the rope and replaced the gear on lead. Decent belay anchors are well back from the edge.

well protected but a little unnerving at the top as it feels like it wants to spit you outwards the whole time. Great climb though.
