The Honey Monster** E2 5b
[Climbers on The Honey Monster (E2) and Darkness at Noon (E5), 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
The easiest route up the face gives a popular and unusual excursion.
1) 5b, 25m. As for Mythical Monster to its step right from the open groove. Continue traversing rightwards beneath a bulge to reach a ledge.
2) 5b, 30m. Move right across a slab then climb up to a couple of holes keeping just left of some ledges. Pull out of these and climb the wall above, passing some more holes, to the top. © ROCKFAX

Went down to the leap to take advantage of super low tides and try The Ducking Stool. Looked impossible - couldn't even see a line - so wimped out up this in the hope of figuring it out from above (it still didn't make sense). Fun little adventure - mostly VS ledge shuffling with a couple harder sections.
