Stubbs Wall

(5 routes)

A short slabby wall about 10m high. What this small crag misses out on with its lack of height,
it more than makes up for in sustained technical climbing on excellent quality limestone.
There are currently four routes on the main face and one other on the obvious overhanging
boulder at the bottom of the doline.

  Layback into the right tending crack. Where the crack ends, top out slightly left up a committing face move. Good pro on medium and small wires.

  The bolted line up the groove forces some fun yet unusual chimneying techniques...? The top can be protected with a large wire or hex.

  Superbly non-strenuous, technical climbing. A straight line over three bolts.

  An awkward off-width that begs to be experienced (though not necessarily enjoyed!).

  A short and powerful climb from under the hanging boulder.
