A combination of the previous two routes is one of the best HVS routes on the edge and earns three ticks in one go. Miss out the stance to get the full effect but be sure to extend the runners.


Simply brilliant. Not only do you get the great moves of the lower wall, you then get the exposure and positioning of over the direct finish. This should be in the top 50, as it's one of the best routes of Stanage (beats Queersville hands down!).

I attempted the 5a start but after slipping 3 times on a polished foot-hold I retired to the usual 4c traverse in. THe crack is magnificent and the overhang just swallows you up. Bang in some gear and hold onto some rock while you blindly reach up for a hold. Scary, exciting and very committing but what a move.

The start of cave innominate is the technical crux. top bit exposed 4C.
