High Crag (Stump Cross)

Some great looking additions from Kim and Will Buck.
We will add a mini-topo in due course but to be going on with Kim reports:
“The crag was really well covered by Malcolm Townsley in the new Yorkshire Grit Guide Volume 1 – all the numbers relate to that.  The little blocks on the left have loads of easy warm-up/kids problems which can be left for people to re-discover for themselves.  The arete of ‘The Prayers of a Fish’ (8) is a really good highball at around Font 6b ish – Will  on-sight soloed it on it’s left hand side – around E2 6a/b
The other new problems are:
12A: ‘Legal High’ Font 6B to 6C – sit start to Ship of the Desert
15A: ‘Stumped’ Font 7A+/7B – Lip traverse starting as for 12A and finishing up the right arete (Two Feet Dyno) without touching the foot block
15B: ‘Kim’s Crimps’ Font 6B/6B+ – Direct up side wall L of 16 from a sitter. Quite reachy/morpho.
19A: ‘Cross’ Font 6Cish – From a sit start at 15B, slap rightwards to better holds and traverse with hands below the top to a long stretch for the top of the right arete (19 – Billy the Fish) up which it finishes. Nice moves throughout.
There’s also an extended, low/lying down start to one of the roof problems (13 or 14) that Will did at about Font 6C.”
