My attempt at deciphering the S Devon and Dartmoor guide (a thankless task). Feel free to add corrections. This face is viewed from the direction of the car park. I have used the guidebook numbering where possible.
1 Rounded rib (direct) Vb 4b
1b An obvious problem absent from the guidebook but recorded at UKC as Flake Crack V0 4c
2 Hmmm - recorded in the guide as 6a Low level Traverse. I couldn't find any 6a climbing unless you traverse the lower break and ban jamming maybe? Instead I off up a fun V1 5b traverse which circumnavigates the block keeping your hands above the lower break all the way until the final section where it is preferable to hand traverse the ledge rather than walk it.
