[James about to cut loose on 'Taylor Made' at Dinas Rock., 2 kb]Similar line followed as for The Blessing, but where The Blessing finishes up The Honey Pot, Taylor Made goes directly up from the base of the crack. The problem is hard to grade as it has two distinct methods. If you're not too tall (around 5ft 6in), you can get a lot of support from the footholds at the base of the crack alowing you to cross through the the finishing jug, but if you're tall (6ft+), then you can go LH to the finishing hold by going again and avoiding the RH cross through. Liam Fyfe also has done this problem footless from the Honey Pot start at V12!

** Looks like the a bit of rock near the lip has crumbled and now has a pretty decent foot hold which you can get a lot out of for the move to the pinch, Now maybe V8 **

2nd session. crossover method. I'm slow finding out the good beta! lost on the grades of things now. Harder than the other V9's but not as hard as the link of this and Fat Cat which gets V10.

No harder than v9. I'm short and used the go again for the last move, wouldn't want to cross through.
