Well the sun was out and everything seemed like it was going to plan (although I arrived late). Unfortunately I hadn't counted on the midges descending on Stanage Edge and eating everyone alive. Even with the midges, everyone was keen to climb with many of the classics in the area having multiple ascends during the course of the day including Heaven Crack, Martello Buttress and Martello Cracks. After several routes and multiple midge bites later I boldly left the crag in search of ice cream, leaving braver KMCers to battle on against the midges.
