The Ducking Stool*** E5 6a
45m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An amazing route with a leg splitting first pitch. The rock can be drier than it looks, which is lucky. Start as for Release the Bats.
1) 6a, 25m. From a ledge at 3m traverse right and then climb a line of holds up and leftwards. (Possible belay at a large nut slot). Move left then back right to reach a ledge above the belay. Mantle onto this and climb the blank wall above on hidden holds. Where these run out, do the splits across the Leap, or move up a little higher and back and foot it up to belay on the boulder choke.
2) 5b, 20m. Step left over a bulge to join and finish up The Honey Monster, or finish direct from the boulder choke at around 5a. © ROCKFAX

Great route. No point traversing at start as in topo just start directly below little groove of route. Did in 3 pitches as described in cc guide. Would recommend doing in 1 or 2 pitches as more logical and safer. Bridging up across the leap is mega! head torch could help...
