Known as Doctor's Saunter in Eastern Grit (Surgeon's Saunter in EG is known as Surgeon's Saunter Direct on UKC). Painful jamming but epic to finish!

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. (same climb as Doctor's Saunter)

I was so cold I could not clip the cam placed in the vertical crack at the end of the traverse. I dropped onto another in the traverse break.

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 17/Jun/07

the travers and manover into the crack is very tiring. Pumped out on a greasy day, I will be back!
