14m. Entry wall Area. 15m R of Yet Another Bristolian Affair is a high, jutting prow. Right again is a sloping, grassy ledge at half height. Start on the grassy ledge, 6 metres L of an ash tree, below a steep grey wall which is overhung at its base. Make a hard move over the overhang into instant exposure, and continue up the wall to a sapling at 6m. Follow Good Intentions (S) to finish, or solo down it. Unprotected until the sapling is reached, with big fall/tumble potential. Reasonably solid, but one or two holds may be less than permanent.

Hold failed mid-move.
riddle - TR O/S - 12/Nov/11

Yes, just worth 5c, and therefore must be a good E3.
bpmclimb - TR rpt - 09/Aug/11 with Clare

A real toprope, with a real, live belayer! None of this farting about with shunts and stuff.
bpmclimb - TR rpt - 06/May/11 with Helen S

delighful little bouldering problem - with a horrible drop right behind you!
hms - TR O/S - 06/May/11 with Brian

First Ascent. Scary
bpmclimb - Solo β - 05/May/11

Repeated, to decide the grade. 5c off the ledge (with poor, sloping landing, and the possibility of rolling off the sloping ledge). 5b after that, and easy climbing after 6 metres. E3 5c? Or E4?
