Below: A nice sequence of pics for Big Air
We arrived at a very quiet Stanage to find the only climbers there, were folks we knew. It made sense to join them and warm up, whist having a social. Ben had done very very little here, so everything was new today. Quick flashes of Crescent Arete V2/V4 on both sides and then Crescent Slab V6 led us nicely to our reason for being at Stanage. Big Air E6 6b** was the target. A crazy problem that would normally have a bad landing, and requires a committing jump and mantel, is at present a cool problem. I was psyched to go first, and even happier with the onsight. Ben swiftly flashed it after me. Breadline V5 was next, and the same treatment followed with an onsight and flash. Ben then flashed Not To Be Taken Away V4*** before we headed off to Burbage North.

Ben wrapped up his day with a flash of Mermaid V6 on the way back to the car. Sore skin, but great fun!!!
