The third route from the right sporting lots of old pegs. Again a good reach helps on the top wall.

dobby 200 - Lead O/S - 06/Oct/13 with Gyles, Jo

getting over the small overhand is tricky
Georgia H - TR - Aug/13

Took 3 goes just down to the last moves over the bulge - finding a suitable crimp blind was tricky. Also direct sun in 28 degrees wan';t helping!! Beware loose rock higher up as with all these here.

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.

The best of the bunch. Plenty of holds still to come off....
TommityP - Lead O/S - 26/Nov/10

Absolutely freezing, so numb fingers thwarted the ascent. I'm 5'8" and that last move's a nightmare! Probably more like 6b/+ for me. Partner pulled huge jugs/undercuts off the start of the headwall too.
