And Now for Something Completely Different*** 5c
[Exactly what it says on the tin, 4 kb]18m. Easy bridging up the leaning groove, with as many hands-off rests as you want. Awkward to strip.

Really interesting 3D climb inside a funnel, then out at the top. Bolts are all in the right place and lots of rests, but aptly named. Lots of bridging needed.(Watch your head!)

brilliant , probably best under 6a climb and so much different to all those slabs you normally get at this grade; awkward to strip!

Chris Craggs - Lead - 25/Dec/10 with Sherri Davy

Great fun! 5c+ in the book, further evidence that these continental bolt clipping types can't cope with chimneys. Carmen made it tricky by bridging all the way, I back-and-footed at about Severe. Then down-climbed most of it in order to get the quickdraws out!

Absolutely Brilliant. Must be the best 5+ on the island. Really is completely different. Tufas, bridging, overhangs, the lot. WOW! 4*s at least
