Who's Yer (Biological) Daddy?* VS 4c
45m. P1 15m 4c. From 10m R of Bad to the Bone, climb choss to a buddleia and sapling. Climb the slab, with relative ease, to an overlap. Avoid the loose flake and mantel onto the slab above to reach the headwall. Step left and up to a right-trending intermittent crack. Climb this awkwardly but interestingly to its conclusion in a jumble of dubious looking blocks; then continue to a tree at the rim of the quarry.

2nd pitch is really nice.

Did a little spot of gardening on this, nothing too over the top but cleaned enough footholds to make the traverse sensible at the grade. The large bramble before the top section is vicious! It's definitely climbable as is and the top half has some interesting moves for the grade so it's worth doing. As the guide says the steep bit is well protected but be very careful of the final 3m which is covered in suspect blocks held on by grass.

the traverse is a bit manky at the moment.

Bold for VS, could do with a clean in places, oh and don't forget the secateurs, monster bramble encroaching.

Nice headwall if slightly loose.

Hmm - felt serious for VS, and loose - and not much traffic (yet). THe lower slabs are quite tricky, but then the move onto the headwall feels poorly protected & very thin / reachy. The rock above seems suspect. The top bit is loose-looking blocks. Glad to get off in one piece! Wouldn't recommend it. More traffic needed - paradoxically.

VS seems right, but we think 4c, especially after it cleans up a bit more. Good climbing after the grotty start, and especially good on the headwall.

Reclimbed with Bill Naylor with the new more direct start after extensive cleaning. Exactly how death was avoided on the FA I'm not entirely sure as the amount of loose "material" that was released during descaling operations was quite staggering... still, it's cleanish now and the climbing on the headwall is actually pretty excellent!
