False Gods** E5 6a
[Unknown climber on False Gods, 1 kb]18m. The best introduction to the harder routes on the wall provides reasonably protected climbing on good holds. It is advisable to back up the insitu pegs and some of the rock requires a cautious approach. Start approximately 8m right of the corner of Call to Arms, below a peg at 5m. The route is also identified by its hanging groove near the top.
20m. Climb to the peg, move slightly left then continue up to a second peg. A few pulls up the wall above lead to a juggy break and another peg. Move right then climb quickly up the hanging groove above. Head up and leftwards to finish up a short groove. © ROCKFAX

E4/5 6a. Start slightly right of two pegs, 3 meters right of Incubus Direct. Climb up and slightly leftwards to another peg with tat. Clip this and make a couple of stiff moves to a break where you'll find the last (hidden) peg. Move out right and up the hanging groove. Finish slightly left with care. Pegs checked / replaced 2014.

Brilliant little route, all over quite quickly but some great moves on good holds, at an impressive angle. New pegs make it a pretty safe option and a soft E5.

Blew the onsight after spending too long fiddling with gear to back up top peg. Pulled ropes and did next go.
Brian H - Lead - 06/Jul/14 with Kafoozalem

Fell off going for the groove near the top, gutted. Steep! A few holds need care. One jug in particular, just before the 1st peg, is quite wobbly. I avoided it but it made the move harder.
R2B - Lead dog - 05/Jul/14 with Rooker

Definitely off vertical
Mr Tickle - 2nd dog - 05/Jul/14 with RusseyB

Used as warm up, flash pump, fell off, pulled ropes and re-lead, silly boy.....
John Mcshea - Lead - 02/Jul/14 with Justin Timms

In its new re-pegged form, felt fairly straightforward and well-protected albeit steep. Placed a few bits to back up pegs but no need to hang around.
Justin T - Lead O/S - 03/Jun/14 with Nick B

straightforward but holds falling off

Alex moore - Lead - 03/May/14 with Tom bunn

one rest and a massive jump off the top into the water!
Graham Atkins - Lead - 14/Jul/12

More straightforward than Call to Arms, need to beef up the arms though - more training required!
chris j - 2nd dog - 06/Aug/11 with Ben Bradford

Lead on Daves gear, clip up! Easy climbing but still well scary! Loved it!
