P1&2 of direct route, seconded. then finished leading up last pitch of this which was awesome! 5b?

Finished up "The Cracks" because the start of the final pitch was so lichenous - needs a good brushing, so may be best late in the season after a bit of traffic.

Led all 3 pitches. Last pitch certainly felt like the 5b it gets in my guidebook. Traverse on p2 is committing owing to the lack of gear

Having a wimpy day. Backed off 2nd pitch poorly protected traverse and found the final crack ridiculously hard

Paula Hamilton-Gibson - Lead - May/84 with Andy Heald

Nearly fall off leading last pitch. Further comment added in 2014: I'm surprised no-one ever talks about this pitch. Of course it's not HVS 5a, as this UKC guide claims, and everyone refutes in the grading comments on the right. It's a superb 5b pitch, immaculate rock, in a wild position. Gets meaner and meaner towards the top (well it's sustained 5a, and then has a very tricksy, mean 5b move). The rest of the route is very good (and scarily badly protected). No idea why it's given only 1 star. Would be 5 stars in keeping with over-hyped Stanage grades.
