Chepstow Zombie (Right-hand) Finish** 6b+
An even better right-hand finish that only just makes the grade.
When level with the right end of the narrow overhang (atop the orange scar) clip the bolt just above then climb up past a further bolt on the right and step up delicately into a short, slim bare groove, Climb the groove past two bolt runners and, from the wall above, reach over to the right to a double ring abseil station.

Not sure about grade, I am happy with hard 6b or easy 6b+ , although the latter sounds diminishing of it. E3 5c, fully bolted is another way of describing it. Really enjoyable route. Worthy of three stars, even if not pretty bloody good climbing.

Better and harder than the original finish. A very good route although I may have avoided the hardest moves by going left a little before going back right..

Had to climb back down from first clip to work out moves at bottom then did it all clean from ground up.

I forgot how good this was. The new additional bolt at the start seems somewhat unnecessary.

Nice enough, strange holds but enough good ones to keep it low in the grade.
Nick Russell - Lead β - 19/Mar/14 with Helen

First route of the day and had done an orienteering race just before, so dogged the start. And why not.

Good route. Better finish than 'Bushmen', and probably a smidge harder.

Meant to climb Bushmen Don't surf, but accidentally climbed this instead! Was happy with it as a 6b, but haven't done its neighbour so not sure how it compares. Thought it was pretty good if a little friable at points.
JKinsella - Lead O/S - 16/Jul/13

First bolt pre clipped. Felt Ok.

Again, crux is at bottom. Interesting moves into the groove, but soft touch 6b+, though definitely "one" harder than its neighbour on the left.

good climb, not sure about the + in 6b+, top felt hard but I guess mostly because i was sooo pumped. as onsight as can be after having done the parent route a couple of months ago.
