Warm up route for the day and it felt like a bit of a battle. Probably just rusty. Quality was all there until a loose-ish top out.

The route was in poor condition, wet and covered in green slime. Like a lot of Standing Stones climbs it would benefit from more people climbing it. It's a good climb otherwise.

Gave this a clean before leading it. Excellent route with plenty of gear and worth **

Nice route, Couple of exciting lay-backing sections (perhaps I should have jammed). The top section above the ledge felt like the crux. Top is a bit loose, slung a block quite a way back from the edge.

The day my blood glucose machine 'broke'.

Not very enjoyable - pretty cold and not in the best condition. We also got confused by the parking and the private signs at the top so walked in from the bottom.

Bit of a land and access dispute going on above the crag so took the long walk in along the reservoir from Bin Green, pleasant. No real path to it from any direction. Looked very green and a few routes were dripping. Still some quality here and there. The route was better than it looked but felt harder after some rain. Belay anchors were about a mile back from the very loose edge. Will go back for more in summer, Twin Crack Corner looks great

Mark spent ages hanging on the rope to get a cam out and couldn't. I abbed down and managed it after another 10 mins. But decent climb - well worth doing.

Really enjoyed smilers corner! Shame about the grass, Standing stones needs more traffic as it is a great place to climb!

well protected but a little unnerving at the top as it feels like it wants to spit you outwards the whole time. Great climb though.
