First half to set up a top-rope for Little Red Rodney et al. Quite a reasonable easy route if you finish at the two-bolt belay on the right.
|Bernie L||20/Sep/14||Lead O/S|
Polished, vegetated, hard to follow, poor belay. Avoid.
|Alex Winter||30/Aug/14||Solo O/S||
A nice move rightwards at the top of the groove, but then a horrible bushwhack up to the base of Liverbird Buttress.
Actually really enjoyed this route. You can avoid all the chossy crap at the top by following the overlap up the edge of slab, which makes it slightly harder but has good gear. The bottom half has rubbish gear except just before the crux.
linked into liverbird, did both in two pitches then ran out out rope up top oops!

One nice move before a sustained section of rubbish! Useful to get to Liverbird Buttress though.

Easterly wind, biting cold interesting route, felt harder than Severe. followed by Liverbird Buttress
Nice well-protected crux, not a lot of good gear and some (but not too much) vegetation otherwise. HS 4a at least... Reasonable adventure-route, definitely not worth a star imo though.
|Stuart William||24/Feb/13||Lead O/S|
Flat and not a lot of pro to begin with but then got a bit more interesting later on.
|George Frisby||25/Jun/12||2nd O/S|
Harder than S, and not as good as I remember. Just wanted to squeeze in some extra ticks in the fading light to round off the best day of the year so far.
James Rich, Jack Bradbrook
Not a brilliant route but at least we got some extra climbing done in a beautiful evening.
Trying to climb this in converse is fairly difficult since they have no traction at all so smearing is completely off limits, luckily there's a few edges and things that I was still able to utilise.
Ran pitches together
think the flake has broken off
|Elliot Carrington||06/Nov/11||AltLd O/S||
Okay-ish climb. Pretty dissapointed. Climbed in the dark.
|Dave Ing||11/Jun/11||Solo O/S|
|Clay C||13/Sep/10||Lead O/S||
Good climb shame about the vegetation at the end however
Rob Stanfield, David Bradbrook
Great route but due to the road opposite, communication is made difficult.
|Matt Smyth||26/Jun/10||Lead O/S|
Did pitch 2. Was fairly wet from rain overnight.
I lead the first pitch
After a 3 week layoff decided to go for something gentle! First pitch is tiny but has no relavent gear and is pushing HS, with both having challenging enough cruxes to be 4a. Trouble is the whole climb would represent poor value at HS. The "Large Ash Tree" has been somewhat delargified of late.
Rich lead the 1st pitch, I lead the 2nd. Felt jolly scary with some very run out parts, not an enjoyable route.
|Andy White||09/May/09||Lead O/S||
Not sure wheret he second pitch finished. There was a broken tree at about 30m but i could see a massive ash tree further up. went to that and ran out of rope (60m)
|Greg Pittam||08/Oct/07||Lead O/S||
Finished in the dark
|The Mountain Goat||18/Sep/06||AltLd O/S|
|Somerset swede basher||18/Sep/06||Lead O/S||
The closest to mountaineering while being in the gorge. Fun first pitch with no difficulties.
Easy second. Radio was useful for communication.
|Fat Tim||24/Mar/04||Lead O/S||
My first outdoor lead, made more interesting by the whole night time, head torch, pack, and my inablity to tell my left from right.
