A difficult move following the traverse, must get stronger.

my new favourite climb on Stanage? Fantastic jams, jugs and lay-backs, classic 3 star stuff but without the polish and hype of stuff like inverted-V. First couple of pieces of gear in place after Richard failed attempt.

Lacks the direct line stating and finishing on the left but is more balanced overall and fantastic moves and jamming mean its still a great classic and HVS for most.

Confused?!.. my guidebooks have Doctors Saunter (VS indirect on SS with hand traverse) and Surgeons Saunter, the direct line at HVS 5b.

Brutal - sat after hand traverse. Too much beer the night before

Climbed the start of this yesterday and continued on Doctor's Chimney. Was shocked when the top section of the starting block moved about an inch as I was pulling up/back on it! Seemed to stop because it caught on the arete. We considered recent seepage might have played a part. Given that it's a beginner's climb in a popular area and most people would not treat the block with suspicion, figured it was worth posting a note of caution.

Oh dear. Harder than expected, unless i'm missing something. Couldn't progress beyond the end of the hand traverse, have a feeling it may require a technique known as "jamming". Backed off.

Top bit felt well out there at VS. Think there is some confusion in the naming here compared to the new Stanage guide, which has Surgeons Saunter down as the direct, and Doctors Saunter down as the hand traverse start, which I looked at but refused as it looked hard!
