Three days booked in the Peak District for some climbing. First and third days spend on opposite ends of Stanage Edge and the second day was a washout so we went skiing in the indoor snowdome in Manchester!

 

Date: 23rd - 25th August 2013 Route Difficulty: Difficult (D) - Very Severe (VS)
  Climbing Locations: Stanage Edge (Popular End & High Neb) Weather: Low cloud to start with - Sunny afternoon

The first climb of the day was only graded 'Difficult' and followed a crack behind the rocks. It was a little tight in places!

Another route - this one was Hard Severe and was a little tricky.

A nice easy 'Diff' route before me moved to High Neb.
Now at the popular section of High Neb.
Stanage Edge.
Although hazy we still had some lovely views.
A rather difficult lead I think! This was graded as HVS so not for another few months I think.
The crux of the route.
And he did it! Well done chap!
