Michael Mullet E3 5c
8m. Basically a boulder problem, perhaps best approached as a solo but beware of the poor, sloping landing! Can be led, although you still have to commit fully to the initial moves. The route takes the slim wall on the left side of The Obelisk, between a chimney on the left and a rounded arete on the right (Nobalicks and Obelisk Crack are just to the right round the other side of the arete). Using a layaway on the right edge of the chimney (no bridging across the chimney itself) and a low undercut on the right, get in balance on the wall and dyno for positive holds up right (possible wires/small cam). A couple more steep pulls lead to an easier finish.

Had a quick go working the crux moves. Felt 5c even with an illicit foot-across-the-chimney at the start.

Second ascent? Done ground up, no pad. I would say it is definitely best approached as a solo/boulder problem and as you say it is very difficult to grade. I think I would be inclined to agree with something around E3 5c since the crux is pretty much unprotectable although I think a fall would be unlikely to be too bad from that height (wouldn't necessarily want to test that theory though). Nice route though. May I ask why you named it after the manager of what used to be Somerfields in Yatton?

First ascent. I thought this top end 5c, and just bold enough for E3, given the poor landing. Always difficult to grade bouldery microroutes in the trad system, though, so hopefully someone will get on this soon and give a second opinion.
