PEAK DISTRICT 8-9.04.2017
The first rock climbing trip of the season. This time we visited the far end of Stanage and Dovestone Tor. I “ticked off” another route from the Rockfax’s top-50 list.

I managed to climb several short ice routes, 2-day alpine-style ascent on Negoiu (2535 m a.s.l.) and interesting 3-pitch mixed route on Geamul Sudic peak.
