Screen Shot 2013-05-23 at 6.53.50 AMDriving out into the Peak District from Sheffiled I was not optimistic about finding dry rock; it was raining and the general feel to the air was DAMP.

However the impeccable limestone of Squirrel Buttress across the river from the famous Raven Tor was ‘dry as a bone’ as they say! I was keen to do ‘Candy Man’; an 8a put up by Ned a few years ago. I actually managed to find some easier beta for the stand and so I set to work on the sit start which has been an obvious but forgotten project since Ned did the stand. Luckily I tried hard and managed to get it done. I was surprised and chuffed to say the least.
