Rockfax Description
16m. Nice wall climbing that would be even better if it stayed clean. Climb the arete to the flake on the left then a ledge. Move right then trend back left to finish. It changes less than it used to as most of the loose flakes have been pulled off long ago. © Rockfax

Thought Mike was joking when he pointed it out as it looked like a blank wall with no protection! However, turns out it was just the angle. Considered backing off after the 1st stage, but pushed through. There's a red herring after the 1st or 2nd break where obvious features to the right should be ignored in favor of less solid but actually better features to the left.

IMPORTANT, PLEASE NOTE. Whilst climbing here today I noticed a large loose block at the top of the route. After asking everyone to stand clear I nudged it and it fell to the ground along with a large amount of dirt and rocks. The top of this route has now changed, please inspect before leading as holds and potential gear placements may now have changed considerably. Also now a large amount of dirt on a lot of holds and ledges.

Great fun. Loved the run out between the good bolt and the bomber nut once I got my head in the right place.

After 2nding Samarkand and Many Happy Returns this was my first ever lead. Fantastic feeling! Have since repeated it and can't believe how brave I was the first time.

I thought this route was excellent. Quite reachy in places, but I'm 6'2" tall so didn't have too much problem with this. Really want to lead this one.

Lots of gardening, even 3 star VS get neglected in quarries like this.
