totally humid evening led it Dave failed as it was too slippy so I went up to get the gear and could not do the crux sliding around all over the place

Good route, one fall and dogged after, then clean top rope. RP on next day. Top move is thin high step off a lay away hold....too a jug.

Interesting route up the arete, probably 6c.

Strange chalky slippy rock made this venue crap! Its such a shame because the lines are great but to close together...

Spoilt by the closeness of the adjacent 'Resovoir Frogs'. The bolts and climbing on these routes is only an arm span apart and the routes seem to share the same holds. Limestone can be climbed up almost anywhere at a certain grade so it behoves new routers to not be greedy and put up new routes too close to existing routes! Overall the rock is very good and the climbing quite unusual and technical. The guys who did it before us said it was more like 6c but it seemed quite hard to me. Not sure what to grade it. For the crux I had my L foot on a big hold on the adjacent route. Is that allowed? Is it cheating? Certainly not if done before the other was put up. (PS Use long draws on the first 3 bolts to avoid rope drag)
