I'm guessing Mr Jebb is a Half Man Half Biscuit fan, as there is a song called "Used to be in Evil Gazebo" on the "Trouble over Bridgewater" album
Includes the chorus "I've been in a mental hospital".......
The description makes the topout sound pretty hard.
I'd be happy falling of the face of that buttress onto a stack of pads, but I wouldn't want to roll sideways off the top of it. Would you?
But it has gear so just as much a trad route - more so since that was the first ascent?
Well done, Aide. Saw you tryin it a week ago last Sunday. Close on lots of attempts, but reckoned you'd get it when fresh.
Looking at the photo in the News section - which is a great shot btw - I think I must agree. But I'm sure it feels like a route when you're on it!
Excellent effort, whatever you want to call it.
If your keen though get yourselves up there and Iíll buy you a beer. Mega climbing, I would say that though.
Apologies any one in the area on the days Iíve spent falling off this route. My language may not always have been great! Sorry.
Well done who ever got the name, the mighty biscuit! ďIíve been in a mental hospital but I donít like to talk about that muchĒ Awesome.
Fantastic, that looks great. Well done.
good effort - well done

great effort Aide. Certainly didnt mean any disrespect by saying it could be bouldered, and your quite right, if theirs gear it makes sense to use it and climb it that way.
Btw, this photo: http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=102367 makes it look like a brilliant line!
The landing looks shocking anyway. Gear seems the sensible option. Good effort.
Yes, like said above, I didn't mean or want to take anything away from your ascent. I'm sure I'd want gear and mats if I tried any moves there! I couldn't tell frm the photo if those two blocks were directly below the line of the route or slightly towards the camera.
Again, a fine effort, well done.
I think I may have saw you hanging around on it on Saturday, It looked pretty hard.
Respect for doing it, respect even due just for getting out in the freezing weather.
I'd planned to do a bit of bouldering and as soon as i felt how cold it was i abandoned all hope of climbing and went for a walk instead.
Perhaps i'm just soft though.
Can't believe you bottled out of calling it the Fritzl Room, Sh** B***ard!
good on you Aide, looks nails!
Looks nice; good stuff. Hard AND safe -- perfect! I guess this buttress must surely be mature now. Perhaps the hardest concentration of E-grades anywhere on grit?
Out of interest Aide, how tall are you?
