matt_read - 2nd O/S - 10/Mar/12 with Edd Southwood

The rock was dry this time. Excellent top pitch. One of the best trad pitches I've done in cheddar.
eddy-on-the-rocks - Lead O/S - 10/Mar/12 with Matt Read

Pitch 1 only. Dark prevented second pitch. Nice climbing. More gear than it looks from below.
eddy-on-the-rocks - Lead O/S - 22/Jan/12 with Matt Read

As Edds description below. Powerful move at the start nice route from there. Well done to Edd for leading.

P1 only, massive knee pain half way up, "adventurous" topout onto belay unable to bend left leg, much fun!

led p1

frank ramsay - AltLd - Oct/11 with Aaron

Sam lead first pitch, which is a bit tricky to protect but pretty safe once you get the gear in. Great technical moves. Started up leading second pitch which I found very technical and strenuous bridging, still recovering from back injury. Backed off towards top of grove not to risk fall on back, and Sam finished it off in style. Defo one of the best routes I've done in Cheddar!

Had tried it about the same time last year, but could only remember the odd bit of info on it. Led both pitches. The groove on p2 is simply superb. Fantastic route, very pleased to have done it!
