Step off the cairn and follow the rampline up and right. Finish via the niche. Pulling on the bolt here is cheating, as is pulling into the niche from its left-hand side.

Pleased to have taken the 5c option today at first attempt. My first 5c.

Last pair at crag, end of day, tired, it was dark, blah blah. Pulled on bolt, so 5a.

Took a little while figuring out the move into the 'niche' but it seemed fairly obvious once i'd done it.

Tricky rockover on the finish, overall a nice climb

This is never 5c, more like 5a/5b IMO. I did it on finger locks in the horizontal cracks.

First go on Southern Sandstone - oooh errr! Not sure it justified a 5c. Other guides give it a 4c. There are various routes above the first ledge once you reach it. Pretty sure I took the difficult on to the right though.

Nice climb. Easier top out than on 'Pull Through'. Again the route is made a lot beter with a direct start rather than using the stack on the left.

Very Wet day at the Sandstone Crag. Due to the mointure in the rock and rain it was hard to get any grips. Eventually made it up with a little help of the rope. No falls. Not bad for a first climb outdoors after 3yrs off.
