The long right-facing corner gives a fine pitch with the most difficult moves at the very start.

Arguably the best route on a crag littered with gems for the mid grade trad afficianado.

Rather polised, awkward and with a few loose holds. No where near comparable in quality to a 3 star route at Malham!

First route since school 20 years ago! Tricky first moves. Thanks for top instruction.Very inspiring.

Did this at the weekend and after the awkward start it eases and gives a good rest at half height. With the warnings about polish I expected it to be in worse condition than I found it in.

There are two large loose blocks 2/3rds of the way up that, unless you like pulling on suspect rock, force you onto the left arete for a couple of moves. Good fun, but doesn't deserve 3*.

Anyone who thinks this route is polished hasn't been to Stoney ! a good honest VS with some fun moves.
