Started first moves of big chris then finished up little Ernie, unknowingly.

The only reason that I don't regret leading this is that, prior to doing it, I didn't know what the shittest route at Stanage is. I now do.

E1 in the definitive but I think HVS is more apt. Steady all the way with a tricky but safe top out.
