The Rooster in the Hen House* 6b+

Rockfax Description
A long, wandering pitch which has a few worthwhile moments. Start just right of Chicken Run and make difficult moves up the initial wall to a short pillar. Easier climbing follows then move right and make long moves up a clean wall to the lower-off. © ROCKFAX

Quite harrowing. Good long route with some ok climbing, but some big loose looking / feeling blocks. Take care or don't bother.
Ian Broome - Lead O/S - 07/Aug/14 with Laika, Josh

I would hardly say this route is chossy or broken as someone has described, not even loose as rockfax says, but it is hard for the grade and more like 6c or even 6c+ with a bouldery start, well worthwhile route
