Putting in the draws. Pleased with this 2nd 7a uk on sight. Quality climbing but almost fluffed it at the top on he foot match
Great climbing, Silly mistake cost me the Rp. Nice and sustained
Fell on 2nd crux on RP. Got it sussed for next time though
First 7a onsite! Good holds all the way.
First proper 7a in UK :-)
Big holds all the way up with maybe two hard moves. In the rain, first full os lead after 3 years away. Felt great!
Definitely lived up to expectations! very onsightable for a F7a, though was a few metres short this time...
|Caspian Johnson||14/Jun||Lead rpt||
Always a pleasure to get back on classics like this
Grabbed last bolt after going wrong way.
1st RP after getting used to Cheddar weirdness.
Great route but had more fun on Get That Man.
1 o/s attempt then got it 2nd time.
|Cheese Monkey||12/Mar||Lead RP||
Awesome. Quick warm up and refresh on moves and nailed it.
first go to work out the moves, second time it all came together! its technical throughout and just a really nice line i thought - really enjoyed it!
|Cheese Monkey||05/Mar||Lead dog||
Awesome route. Got it wrong on 2nd crux though then ran out of daylight. Next time!
first go I sussed it, second i fluffed the second crux!! and then it was dark...
Great warm down at end of day. Really enjoyed it.

|DJ Nelson||15/Sep/14||Lead RP||
Second go. Gutted not to onsight it. On onsight attempt, got high after doing all the tricky moves but got pumped out trying to clip after following some misleading chalked (poor) holds. Awesome route.
Hardest warmup I've ever done, I was shakin like a leaf alright!
Oops got confused on the roof. Very stretchy end, unsure if did it right. Very good route.
Brilliant route. Well chuffed to get it.
|Trisha Murphy||20/Jun/14||Lead β||
Had a go up to 7th bolt between Ric's attempts.
Fluffed the flash. Top roped clean then next go.
Annoyingly slipped off the onsight, got 2nd go. Great climbing
first clean 7a
Didn't notice any crux.
|Oliver Tilbury||19/May/14||Lead β|
Felt lovely! So different from first time when I was scared!
Richard Bennett, Pippa Froggatt
Great route, awesome moves. Hoping this to be first clear 7a lead
failed at bolt 6 as tired and pumped. Clip looks good but a bit scary with little feet. must come back!
Awesome climb well worth repeating!
Second RP with darkness approaching, lovely route, thanks to the belaying team!
|Justin T||17/Nov/13||Lead dog||
Off the upper wall.
|Alex Winter||15/Oct/13||Lead β||
Great route. Hands got quite cold, but managed to warm them up at the rest. Crux is fairly straightforward when you've got the beets.
Frustrating, fell off due to z clipping for the first time ever halfway through the crux rockover. Spent ages faffing at the top trying to work out how to use the terrible mono pockets, turns out there's a much simpler sequence to the right...
|anthony henry||06/Oct/13||Lead dog||
didn't really know where i was going, got pumped, fell.
|Nick Russell||26/Jun/13||Lead RP||
Second try. Great, technical climbing. The crux felt a lot easier than I expected.
|Ian Bell||09/Jun/13||Lead dog||
3 attempts. Close on the last but messed up the 1st crux and then tired for the 2nd. I'll be back!
|Martin Grenfell||04/Jun/13||Lead RP||
Rad climb with a couple of interesting technical bits.
|Nick Russell||04/Jun/13||Lead dog||
Got through the first tricky section but then spat off the second, just one move from the jug! It should go next time
|Jim Brooke||18/Jun/12||Lead RP||
|Jim Brooke||27/May/12||Lead dog||
went for the onsight, but slipped off the delicate section after the crux
|Gareth Bowen||24/May/12||Lead dog||
Thought I was going to do this first go. Felt like an onsight.

Brilliant climbing not very Cheddary F6c?
Lovely tech climbing. Long but didn't feel sustained.
|Jonathan Emett||26/Nov/11||Lead dog||
missed a foothold at the crux. nice climb, even in the dark! pulled off a right-hand side pull after the crux, didn't make too much difference imo.
|Brian H||13/Nov/11||Lead RP||
Harder since hold fell off - hard 7a but perhaps not quite 7a+.
|Steve Winslow||02/Nov/11||Lead rpt||
missing block doesn't make it a grade harder detract from the quality of the line.
Lead again after rock fell off it, slightly harder and still as brilliant.
|robbie Warke||25/Sep/11||Lead O/S||
|Nick Allan||20/Sep/11||Lead RP|
Retroflash putting clips in. Excellent moves. Fitting route to end the summer evening sessions with.
|Caspian Johnson||16/Apr/11||Lead rpt||
Holds were wet. Great.
Fell off onsight attempt with anchor at eye level; then found giant foot hold. Very disappointed with outcome, but pleased with the effort.
almost onsight, stupid foot movements spat me off.
Good beta from Wendy.. Would have been a great flash on lead
|Dan Jenkin||12/Sep/10||Lead O/S|
Did it first redpoint try.
|Georgina Brooke||26/Jun/10||TR dnf|
Went up with the intention of just putting the clips in to redpoint it but actually ended up climbing it clean. Finally. A massive tick off my list!
Cool moves but pretty polished. Sustained and interesting all the way
got to first crux, almost made it to ledge.
Soft? lovely delicate technical climbing
retro flash - brilliant route
Painful on the toes
Gav, James Davies
good stuff, but no where near getting it clean
Lovely. i'll be back for this one...
|Luke Dawson||22/May/10||Lead O/S|
Top roped a couple of weeks ago and got it clean today - lovely!
|James Moyle||13/May/10||TR dog|
|Gareth Bowen||13/May/10||TR dnf||
Probably won't be leading this any time soon. Sequencey and smeary in places.
2nd go, great climb
Got it clean without stress last try on on top rope after working out the key sequences. Felt like flowing nicely through it. I am so gonna lead it and smash it next time! Such a nice climb.
hard for 7a! far too tired and hungover. last route of the day. would go if fresh.
Some more holds have fallen off. New sequence off undercut. Brilliant route.
|Rosea Day||??/2010||Lead RP|
very nice indeed. from the third bolt the nice technical moves just keep going.nearly muffed the top, had to down climb a tad to match feet on good hold. chuffed.
|Luke d||17/Oct/09||TR O/S|
|Richard Hall||04/Oct/09||Lead RP||
Warmed up. Great route.
Superb route. First 7a onsight!
|Tim M||10/Sep/09||Lead O/S||
Echoes from the shouting and cackling chav family in the car park were bouncing around the gorge. The dad mooned "have a look at MY cheddar gorge".
|chris sm||10/Sep/09||Lead rpt||
A lot easier when you can feel your fingers.... great route.
|Stefan Kruger||20/Jun/09||Lead RP||
The warm up! Needed to get some kit back out of twilight after a mate's big lob.
|chris sm||22/Feb/09||Lead dog||
Fell off one move after the hard bit.... bugger.
Finally! In the snow.
|Kev Little||??/2009||Lead O/S|
Had loads of beta from John, but still felt pretty hard for 7a! Awesome climbing though!
Fell off 1 bolt from the top absolutely gutted! Route reading error but will have it next time! Awesome route!
2 slips... weaker since exams
Felt harder than the day before! Finished it more direct - thankfully I didn't need to pull on the monos.
1st or 2nd RP after previously bricking it on it once or twice. Steped R to finish, bringing me close to The Fall
Nailed in an after-work session. Chuffed to get it so quickly. Great moves on the grey sheet - technical and sustained. First 7a.....
A couple more attempts at this route today. Nearly. Mid section has a deceptively tricky sequence. Sorry to admit I broke a small foothold (and 2 brick sized blocks from underneath it!) off the crux 02/03/08, making the sequence harder - though still not more than english 6a. Changed the grade? Perhaps..
hung on almost every bolt :(
