Done as part of the 100 stanage stars ticklist. 43 routes in 15 hours. Absolutely exhausting, far too hot, and midge hell, but what an achievement! We had great fun. Well done Ben and thanks!

The crack was relatively dry but the faces were green and wet as it was raining sideways. Very nice climb, worth two stars I reckon.

Brown - Solo O/S - 01/May/07 with John

Great lead! It is a little awkward in places as it says. Today I was trying to work on my jamming skills abit so I went for all the jams I could find. Good gear throughout, although as you near the top it gets a little more difficult to place. Suprised this also doesnt have stars. Could imagine it would be a real horror if wet or cold. Some really solid jams and good positions in places. Just wish it was a little longer as always.
