SuperLee1985 14/May Lead O/S

Nice route although felt hard/pumpy at the top when placing gear(think I did it wrong). The top is let down by the grass/mud/turf at the top. The direct finish is capped by a huge lump of turf and is impassable, the left hand finish, which feels like the right way to finish is topped by muddy ledges and bushes leaving only the right hand finish onto the block which feels like a but of a cop-out despite being awkward.

Great route :) All the more memorable as we had a fly by, by a Lancaster Bomber that came in over Greenfield Res up the valley between Ravenstones & Standing Stones before heading south - brilliant to see :)

Jolly good fun, though a bit grassy at the top leading to a slightly alternate ending.

Felt sustained. Most comfortable have felt on lead, went for moves as thought would be OK hold rather than wanting to feel around holds first etc.

Really lovely Severe, I'm going to be the first to say hard for a Severe though! Starts of nice and easy and get progressively harder. With some tricky exposed bridging moves 2/3 of the way up, often good holds for your hands but have to be slightly cunning which just makes it interesting! Topped out with a bit of effort out to the right as I couldn't see a belay above. Dad felt the same I believe, well worth doing, don't dismiss it because of its dirty green lower section! Please!

Lovely severe, test your use of good bridging and crack footwork as if it isn't good your arms will be tired by the top. Ace severe!
