Rockfax Description
Set in the arete is this attractive groove. Enter this using an unhelpful set of scoured holds; frequently frustrating, though with good gear. Continue up the groove to a good ledge below an overhanging block. Overcome this at its left-hand corner by a short struggle or, if you have had enough, escape off to the left. © Rockfax

Did this on second- bottom half is a polished horror! The polish fairies ( the brasso kind) have been wiping all grip away on the bottom half. Top is more exciting with some nice flakey laybacking, and an exciting finish with the committing pull up ( committing if you’re a bit short legged)

Partner bailed off first move as footholds were polished and hands greasy in the heat. I placed a cam and climbed down and weighted it before starting again and doing the route when I trusted a new partners rack of gear. Really enjoyable climb though. Definitely interesting for the grade and deserving of it's 3 stars!

Man oh man. Walked up to Stanage for first time with my son, and on our approach, this line just stood out to me. I told him, I don't care what that's graded, I'm going to give it a try. How often do you get an arete with a corner/crack inset into it? And a finish with an optional roof boulder problem?? Felt absolutely magnificent to top out and really see Stanage (through the drifting fog).

Climbed this way back, messed up start sequence and got beaten by the polish - as polised as grit gets?! Still the gear held so pulled back on grabbed a chalk bag and stopped being a pansy. Good climb, sustained at the grade.

Made an arse of this one too. Backed off because I didn't want to commit to the first move, like a big chicken. Seconded after mate did it no problem. Finished up in state of mild terror on top rope. Realised I'll probably never make a climber. Considered taking up knitting. Rack for sale, one careful owner, PM for details.

Very windy. Set up a belay just below the top as I thought it would be more sheltered, ended up taking about fifteen minutes to do this as I was getting blustered all over the shop, all the while shouting and swearing at no-one. Fortunately my profanity was swallowed easily by the 60mph gale (said the forecast). Had an absolutely terrible time belaying, struggling to breathe, snot streaming from my nose, blood pouring from my hand, my eardrums feeling like they were about to burst, the cords from my hoodie whipping me in the head. After getting back down to the base of the route I realised I had left my helmet on the ledge below the top. Rubbish.

This has to be one of the most polished starts of any gritsone climb I've done. It gets much better higher up and is nice but its a perilous first 10 feet

Enough rain to make the polished holds a problem. Not convinced about the 3 stars, but that may just be the conditions talking.
