Nice moves and a good route. A couple of the holds in the upper section are a tad dirty but it's easy ground by that point.

Nice route but I don't think it is E1 5b. It's easier than Withy Crack next door.
Chris Sieradzki - 2nd O/S - 06/Jul/14 with Hooo
Very soft for E1. Rushed up it in a hurry as we had to leave, and it was no problem. Hardest bit was the rope drag from the first bit of gear above the cave, so at the ledge I untied and continued on one rope.

I still suspect this may be HVS, taken in context with the grades of e.g. Withy Crack, Strictly Ballroom and Smell the Glove.

Decent gear for this crag, not using your friend 1 low down when it is needed for the high crux would be wise, nice gift at the grade

Had a bit of gear beta (take plenty of cams and slings), but no tips on the moves. My first E1 lead. A good climb, but soft for the grade, it didn't feel like I had just broken a new lead grade as I've climbed harder HVSes, but happy to be able to call myself an extreme leader!
Made a right meal of abbing off and getting the gear - the ab point is well off to the left and I was penduluming around all over the shop!

Measured 30m. Start at cave entrance, rather than above it. From third sapling, step up and follow left-rising crack to pockets.

muddy shoe slipped off small foothold just above tree but lowered to tree and climbed top cleanly. Annoyed about fall though! Lovely route.

First time in Fairy cave, so maybe this is normal, but thought the rock quality on this route was fairly poor.

Second with Mike Kann. Could not say I climbed all of it as Iain kept rope tight on hard part...which was good when I slipped off! Started out in failing light and finished ab in darkness.

Nice moves over the overlap, and where the slab steepens. Pulled off a sidepull at one point, and nearly came off, and my feet came off at one point but I managed to hang on.
