The Suckstone itself is covered in a deep layer of moss and was partly obstructed by brambles. Steve lowered me on a body belayed me from top to bottom so I could clean most of the moss off to reveal all the hidden holds and I had hacked away the bramble to open up the start. The previous week We had attempted the route but was impossible to see the holds which made it feel like climbing E1; we were unable to complete the problem. Once cleaned off it was a really enjoyable climb, I highly recommend it. Nice start big holds, get into the crack half way up(which is now usable), a few pebble smears and a hand plant to gain height to reach a crimpy pebble then reach for the top.
Looking to clean off more routes and open this rock back up as it has been neglected for far too long.

Nice line, managable under mossy conditions, though with a fairly high crux. Easier for the tall, and the flexible. And the lighter.
