About Stoney Middleton (OS):
Without a doubt one of the greatest crags in Britain (???). Over 200 routes, with over 150 Extremes, and some great VS and HVS lines. South-facing (warm) and 100-200 ft. tall. If you think you are solid in a grade, come to Stoney and come back to Earth. The trade routes on this limestone cliff can get rather polished, so bring chalk and sticky boots, and maybe a brush, and don't bring a big ego!
Without a doubt one the most polished crags Britain. Quarried limestone that has been climbed on for years but despite the high traffic bits still fall off in some places. Stony has lots of history which points to the poverty of English climbing.
If you get over the polish there are some good routes: Scoop Wall (E1 5b), Wall of Bubbles (E2 6a), Wee Doris (E3 5c), Cabbage Crack (E3 6a), Oliver (E4 5c), Circe (E4 6a) are some of the best.
