Idiot Village* 6a+
11m. Climb the large blocky overhangs to the right of a deep cave. A little careful route finding reduces the thuggery and once over the first roof the rest is straightforward, so long as you can jam. © ROCKFAX

Rich led most of it but failed to top out so set top rope on 4th bolt and came back down. I climbed up to 4th bolt with issue, really enjoyable, probably would have struggled from there but did not try.
