[A camel - a man - a thistle., 3 kb]30m. The sustained line up the centre of the wall which is almost always dry. Gaining and leaving the biggest "pebble" on the crag will constitute the crux for most people. One of the best routes at the grade in the country.

Dangerous Dave - Lead O/S - 25/Sep/10 with Mark Littlewood

First sport climb ever! Rested a few times although i think getting used to conglomerate climbing would help. Nice route though.

Pretty cool but maybe too long. The last 5 or so meters seem pointless.

Excellent climb with nice moves- done in the dark with a head torch cos it looked so good! Plenty of holds all the way, just a bit sustained.
