Slipped off the first bit due to being very wet, Name very appropriate considering the conditions
Jack_F - Lead β - 02/Mar/13

great, varied climbing. Not your normal Cheddar style
just one more - Lead O/S - 07/Sep/12

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?

lush. really natural line,good bridging and laybacking. got lured over right at the top by the tricksy jugs. took a nice pendulum. simple enough direct with the help of a slightly hidden undercut.
