The Ace, first climbed by Jerry Moffatt, is the low start to the campus-style problem The Joker at the classic Peak gritstone venue of The Plantation Boulders, Stanage Edge.
Stewart, who is usually based in Austria, commented:
"I'm back over in the UK visiting family for Christmas and New Year and I hoped to climb on the Grit but the weather has been atrocious! I had one lucky day last week where I managed to climb the Ace at Stanage but since then have been visiting climbing walls! "
Nice one Stew!
