/ Best Stanage routes <=HVS; no stars
A couple of easy days beckoning.
What oft overlooked gems are there at Stanage HVS and below?
I'd say there probably aren't any 'real' overlooked gems on perhaps the most heavily explored and visited cliff in the UK,

Thanks - the comments make interesting reading!
I did it as part of the 1989 VS challenge and thought it was quite good. I think I might have done it since too.
In fact if you want a day (or two - depending on your pace) exploring some of Stanage's more quirky corners (as well as some turbo, mega classics), the 1989 VS Challenge is ace.
Im possibly the only one who enjoys it but Grovel? You Don't Know the Meaning of the Word! (HS 4c) is great fun in my mind, if just for the sheer weirdness of it
