Very long unprotected runout on our ascent. Obviously went off line. Wouldn't have thought it possible, but managed to get loop of lace into a crab. Almost caused a really freaky fall. Top crack very polished footholds but good jams for hands. Despite eveything, thoroughly enjoyed it.

Not sure why it deserves 2 stars - too much dirt, vegetation, polish and broken glass to outweigh the few enjoyable moves in my opinion. I think 1 star would be more fitting.

Lovely sunny weather. Did in 5 pitches (split the first pitch as there was a group above us). Relatively straight forward, a couple of awkward moves on polished rock, some good gear and some not so good as my 2nd nicely told me when half of it had lifted/popped out. I would say this is the top end of a VDiff or bottom end of HVD with the polish.

First climb at Avon Gorge. Sunday morning traffic noise & wind made communication a bit difficult.
Me P1 to ledge below and to right of flake.Lee P2 to next decent ledge by ivy. Me P3. Lots of polish on the chimney made ascent a bit awkward. After that felt a bit exposed in parts but fair protection and good holds to finally a good ledge and anchors. Lee led last pitch but in hindsight we could have scrambled to the trees.Remember to take money for ice cream van at top.Great view. Walked back down path.

An almost perfect mini- expedition.
Taking counsel of that wise old sage St Steve the Healer led the ever intrepid Jimb0 and I to venture, one unseasonably warm evening after work, onto this fine line, wending our way up sun warmed slabs and flakes, lightly polished cracks and corners, and abundantly furnished stances and belays. Deviously mixing descriptions in the Avon and South West Climbs guides resulted in five pitches, and so passing all the [though minor] difficulties to Jimb0. Street lights and headlights on the A40, and that perennially festive Clifton bridge, surprisingly atmospheric as dusk fell on our final moves. A scramble back through the woods in the dark, to the car, and picnic on crisps and Fanta.

Braintax - Lead - May/09
Found it hard to follow the route as described in the logbook and ended up going pretty much straight up the face, much harder climbing, more like 5b/5c in places. Also missed the first belay spot and contiuned in my incorrect path and ended up at the 2nd belay spot but on the left, tricky getting up there from that side. i think i need to work on reading the guidebook....

First taste of the Avon Gorge. Easy access; park and climb out of the boot (almost). Polish up to 4 metres made getting on the route a challenge, but once started the rest was nowhere near as bad. Pleasant progress up to the final belay position which is shared with the spacewalk traverse pitch 4 of Gronk; a tempting glimpse of things to come.
