[Zyg on Voices in the Bower , 3 kb]18m. A long line starting at the base of the wall. Climb leftwards on the left-most bolts to the edge of The Bower. It can be continued up the arete as for Ladybower to give a one-star outing. © ROCKFAX
On The Cuttings Lower Tier. Start up "Up the Junction" for the first couple of clips and then trend left until a groove leads onto the corner of the Bower ledge above. Continue by climbing the "Ladybower" arete to give a fine 18 metre F3. Note: Requires steady climbing so perhaps not a good "novice" lead. Can be finished in the Bower (top out, there is a belay clip on the wall at the start of "Ladybower").

Nice F3, worth it for the step-back-out after the midway to find a small footledge - literally stepping out off a cliff... only a one star though - many of the lower holds have thorns/spined-plants all over them
