Real Men do Eat Quiche** S 4a
25m. Climb Lorna's Lunch until, just below a sapling, it is possible to stride right into another crack system, which is climbed to saplings.

Ticklists: Fairy Cave Quarry Top 20.

PUBLIC LOGBOOKS
This climb is in 207 logbooks, and on 12 wishlists.

Did in morning and a bit damp. Felt very slippery - hence first possible lead fall, or more of a 'slide'.

Good line, felt good for the grade, not a great deal of distinction between this and the parent route though.

My 2nd HS. Whilst the traverse right is interesting and harder than going left for Lorna's Lunch, the crux of both climbs is at the bottom.

Strange route. The first half is quite good fun, but shortly after the step across at the sapling it become quite grassy and vegetated. Abbed off some cord tied around tree at top.

The CC guide book doesn't say to traverse above or below the tree. I opted for above which felt quite easy. Still claiming it though!
