The groove in the most sheltered part of the crag. The start is often wet.
Climb up through an overlap, tiptoeing around the wet bits, to a massive pocket. Continue bridging until it is possible to enter the groove above. Climb the groove with a difficult move to finish.

Swung left onto big holds at bolt 3, will try to bridge it next time. It had me working hard.

Really hard, especially in the lower section. I didn't make quite as much of a hash of it as I was anticipating, though.

Slipped off the first bit due to being very wet, Name very appropriate considering the conditions

great, varied climbing. Not your normal Cheddar style

Jon_Warner 19/Jun/12 Lead dog

It's got a pretty hard move if you avoid the chossy block out left completely (which is advised given its current condition). 6c perhaps?
