On the pinnacle of Nicodemus Knob about 1km north of The Cuttings. The right hand (southerly) route. A good reach helps.

Tough, overhang section felt like easy 6a then the technical middle felt harder. Lots of tiny crimps. Really enjoyable. Scrambled up side to set up top-rope so we could have a go.

Easiest of the four, although still no pushover with some technical care needed. Beware loose rock higher up as with all these here.

Last route of the trip heading back to weymouth. Nice with a techincal mid height sequence. But too hot and tired to properly enjoy it

Cheesy rock!
bsparky - Lead dog - 31/Mar/13 with Ralph Ranford

A lot more technical than it looks. All the routes on the "knob" are good but seriously need more traffic as they are quite dirty/dusty and there is a lot of loose rock in the band of "cheese" that runs across at 2/3 height.

Climbed in sunny, buy -1C conditions on New Year's Day. Thought it was the 6b and it certainly felt it! Just like Steve, numb fingers made it harder, but I'd say this was more like 6a+.

Desperate in the cold weather (2 degrees) Might feel 6a in the dry/warm - more like 6a+/6b today.
