16m. Bolted direct version of SGT, starting between Bogger Bob and SGT's original start. Possibly retro-bolts the start of Hong Kong Garden.

Wish there was more stuff on this wall, nice n clean.
Tom Brierley Gore - Lead rpt - 29/Mar/14 with Shijing Hu, Maria Brierley

Felt straight forward up until the last crack section
monsteratt - Lead O/S - 23/Mar/14

Pleasant, such a nice wall. A very soft touch though, so many places to rest... feels like you could stop to have lunch half way up.

I'll be a bit fitter next time... Great route. Daft place for the lower off though.

Finally managed to clip the abseil station. And to pull a loose hold off somewhere low down on the left.

Gibbo - Lead - 22/Feb/14 with Claire Chipperfield, Tom Gibbison

Would like to claim I did this, but I got too pumped trying to clip the abseil station with the right hand in a wet crack.
pheotleyr - Lead dog - 16/Feb/14 with Caleb, Neil

Dogged it to put up the draws/dry some wet holds. Went second time no problems. Crux is getting off the floor! Following the natural line of flakes and edges slightly to the left is lovely 6b+
Kemics - Lead RP - 16/Feb/14 with Peter

Not quite sure where the 6c+ version goes but the 6c route was nice, if soft
Cheese Monkey - Lead O/S - 23/Nov/13 with Peter

What I did definitely wasn't 6c+, more like 6b+ / 6c. Great route with a somewhat silly step left to the abseil station to finish.
pheotleyr - TR O/S - 23/Nov/13 with Ben

Doh! Great route.
Jon_Warner - Lead dog - 16/Nov/13 with Jenni, Dave Pattinson

Cool route. Props up to anyone who climbs crack pure without undercut!
derico - Lead O/S - 16/Nov/13 with Sadact

2nd go. 6c version (staying left as you get up onto the ledge at 2/3 height rather than heading straight for the crack).
bonelessivar - Lead RP - 16/Jul/13 with Alan

wurzelinzummerset - 2nd dog - 16/Jul/13 with Ric

jrccrosby - 08/Jun/13 with Federico

took a far right line at the top, avoiding the crack.
chris687 - Lead dog - 17/Mar/13

Mel's first lead belay so pumped out waiting for slack on every bolt. Should go next time no drama. Really nice climbing and a legit 2 star route. Crux is clipping the anchor?

good interesting moves through out and vaired
brices - Lead O/S - 15/Jul/12 with Andy Brice

Felt more like 6b+ ish, nevertheless a good route!
stevelucocq - Lead O/S - 19/May/12 with RichC

will be back for another attempt hopefully!
Jenny Seaborne - TR dog - 13/Apr/12

1st redpoint - fell off the final move o my first attempt. Unless thihs is supposed to be a highly eliminate line, it isn't anywhere near 6c+

Retro on-sight. Feeling a lot easier today!
xcomm - Lead O/S - 03/Mar/12

finally ticked after having worked out a sequence for the top section for the vertically challenged!! A brilliant route
shazza65 - Lead RP - 14/Feb/12 with johncorber

6c? Nice, but wandered to the left at about bolt 3. Clips alerady in & that was crucial!
Phil Murray - Lead RP - 05/Feb/12 with Steve Wright

Hidden - TR - 28/Jan/12

RP3: really nice route and climbed in glorious winter sunshine wearing t-shirt
Jon Didymus - Lead RP - 28/Jan/12 with Nick

Did all the moves, lacking stamina...
Fatboy1000 - TR dog - 15/Jan/12 with crispin

Good route! Though easy 6c
Stone Muppet - Lead O/S - 15/Jan/12 with bc

Onsight!! I couldn't comment on the grade, I don't climb much sport and never anything as tough as this. Brilliant climb, lovely movements and very pumped at the top. I followed line of least resistance and found myself to the right of last bolt and lower off. Very happy with this. Addendum, not 6c+, more like 6b+
puppythedog - Lead O/S - 26/Nov/11 with sara

clean on second attempt. Great route. Easy 6c+ or maybe 6c

Redpoint 3rd attempt. Hard start and similar finish.

climbergg - 2nd - 10/Sep/11 with cheesesarnie

A great route, although the logical way to climb it wanders up the face. From the lower ledge I climbed up leftwards towards bogger bob then came back right to finish up the crack of SGT. Like this I thought it was more like soft 6c than 6c+. Lovely climbing though!

Needs its own lower-off.
