I think we top roped this one but felt harder than rage
simon1965 - TR - 26/May/14 with Si Willshire, Scot slim boy

6b in 'From horseshoe to Harpur Hill' even at that it felt a struggle. Was completely puzzled at the roof, then managed to work my way up after a bit of a struggle. Will come back for a clean ascent.

Possibly easy 6b (graded 6b in the current Rockfax). Quite a committing runout at the crux

If you have a lawn to mow or dog poo to pick up on said lawn, rather go do that than climb this sand bag. More loose rock on top half than is worth writing home about. 1 rock on partners head and one on rope.
