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.

Three goes up this today and I got it! Much easier and less scary to go directly up instead of left into the chossy corner. Difficult and a bit unsatisfying at the top but otherwise enjoyed it. A little bit of cheating with two extra clips engineered for me by Nick (quite necessary)

Nick Russell 23/Jun Lead rpt

Deviated to the left again, then watched Emily go direct. I really should try that sequence!

Wet at the start so pre clipped the first couple of clips, good moves going up. got to the chains and clipped the bolts off a nasty lay back just before the hold broke off and i took a whipper from the top.

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?
