Senile Taff Corner HVS 5a
27m. Worthwhile, and fairly tough for the grade (formerly E1). Climb the big corner left of Withy Crack until, just below some trees, it is possible to step left onto a ledge in the arete. Climb cracks to the top.

Not a friendly route. Looked ok from the ground but felt loose, dirty and uninspiring. Backed off before the bulge.

Not a bad route,quite pumpy and some good moves
just one more - Lead O/S - 12/Sep/14 with john smith

Very loose and vegetated to start. It started to rain halfway up so I cowered under the lip. After the lip there is a very large block that is slightly loose - pull gently!

Pulled of a shoe box sized block at the start, where it's very loose. Crack was wet from seepage. Got too pumped on the crack and bailed a 2-3 meters before the trees by traversing onto Withy's crack and finishing on that.

Unusually for quarry requiring arm strength
Tristypants - Lead dog - 11/Aug/13 with Helen Eden

Harder than Withy Crack and Bad to the Bone put together
Cheese Monkey - 2nd O/S - 24/Jul/13 with Iggy, Peter

not a bad climb. was already properly pumped when swinging over onto the left hand slab and traversed out to the left (loose rock) instead of placing a nut (crack was covered by grass growing out of it) and stepping up. close to coming off, properly scared and pumped afterwards, but just about made it.
pheotleyr - Lead O/S - 24/Jul/13 with Iggy, Ben

Overcame the urge to thrutch up it which made it feel better than it looked. Definitely harder than BttB.
squicky - 2nd O/S - 24/Jul/13 with Ben, Peter

Nice route. Good crux but crappy rock near start
Rick Ashton - 2nd O/S - 20/May/12 with Robert Drynda

A tough HVS 5a, old school. Surprisingly good route!
bpmclimb - Lead O/S - 27/Apr/11 with Clare

Block broke off as I was trying to rock over onto it. Decided corner was a bit too friable
