This Climber Has a Terrifying Moment on a Notorious Route | Nick Brown: Stone Kingdom

Mina Leslie-Wujastyk is a super strong climber who has never trad climbed before. Naturally, her first attempt is on ‘Unfamiliar’, a notoriously hard E7 at Stanage in the UK. The higher Mina climbs, the longer the run out and the worse the potential fall. The huge 7km long Stanage Edge is definitely the most renowned grit stone crag in England.

Peak District, about four miles long and 458m at its highest point is very much beloved by rock climbers who come from all over the country to pit their skills against the many unyielding routes. The outcrop is highly popular, partly because of its closeness to both Sheffield and Manchester, but above all due of its wealth of quality routes. As she’s making the final moves and trying to swallow her fear she gets one final, nasty surprise that almost sends her into a huge fall. It wouldn’t be climbing in England it someone wasn’t scared.

The vast majority of routes are relatively easy and ideal therefore for beginners as they tend to follow well-protected crack lines. Having said that, the smooth faces and rounded arête are a brilliant natural playground for those in search of quality test pieces.

Walking around Stanage is never less than atmospheric and stumbling across these magnificent reminders of the industrial past – that’s history, that is, right there, in front of you. Stanage isn’t just for climbers though, there are plenty of walks to be had to suit all ages and abilities, but all with stunning views; from the top the vista is endless, and will take your breath away. A walk along the edge is straightforward but exposed, making conditions difficult throughout the year as it’s often battered by several kinds of weather.
