Stanage and a trad initiation

Glorious afternoon at Stanage for Leah’s first experience of trad climbing.

After careful research, Jake chose Heaven Crack as a suitable initiation – but it turned out a lot steeper than it looked in the book. Not that Leah was at all phased…

Then Jake demonstrated the results of his hard work on the pull up rings in Tobago, with a swift ascent of Flying Buttress Direct

… Before the midges descended and stopped play.
