8m. One of the easiest routes on the cliff goes up the chipped, sandy staircase around the corner. This can be done on the left, or the right; both are easy enough but unprotected. © ROCKFAX

Very wet. Rockfax guide says Mod. With muddy boots and water sitting in the chippings I backed off before an almost certain careen off the left of the slab. Don't encourage a beginner to solo this.

Is it a difficult mod, or and easy diff...dunnoo. Done in Clarksonesque tightish jeans and approach shoes, and it was all a bit damp around the edges. Should have had a beer to celebrate my last climb of my youth. I was 50 the next day.
