+Aide Jebb completes Evil Gazebo (E6, 7a) on Stanage, 122 kb
With all the Peak District media glare shining directly on 'Team America' (Do they really have stars and stripes on their bouldering mats?) Yorkshire climber Aide Jebb slipped by unnoticed to fire-off a superb looking new route on Stanage, taking a direct line next to Little Women on the Apparent North Buttress.

Evil Gazebo, climbed after top-rope inspection, (E6 7a - Font 7c-ish) follows "Funky moves between the breaks, then a nose grinding mantle to finish".

The route looks technically desperate, but is in Aide's words "dead safe".

As for the name? "Well, because it looks nice, but will chew you up and spit you out!"
