Dexter* HS 4b
[The line of the route is left of the crack in this picture up the slab to the left end of the break., 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
A worthwhile and pulse enhancing route making the most of the slabby wall left of The Arete. Start 2m left of The Arete.
1) 25m. Climb up and diagonally left without much gear to a gap in the bushes. Move left across and up a slab to a tree belay below a wide rounded runnel.
2) 4b, 26m. Take the smooth wide runnel onto the open smooth slab. Move up a thin, fading crack to its end and then up the bold slab to an easing. Continue up the steadier slab above to Lunchtime Ledge. © ROCKFAX

Logging as onsight because why would I do it again if I could remember the first time I did it! But seriously, this is not a severe grade, purely for the boldness.

AshBarnes - AltLd O/S - 18/Aug/15 with Gravy

I led the 1st pitch which was very easy, Ash led second pitch witch was more interesting. Having a large rucksack on made it pretty difficult to retrieve a large hex on the second pitch. Would grade it a Severe rather than a HS
thompsonjr21 - AltLd O/S - 18/Aug/15 with AshBarnes

First pitch was fine, had a bit of a struggle and a slump on p2 before abbing off. Need to get used to limestone again I think..

Graded here at S 4a, West Country Climbs at HS 4b which is more like it. Very bold moves high up on the slab, some tricky moves low down. After millions of years of evolution, all my legs could do was start shaking while 6 meters above me gear... thanks for that...

Tried to do this quickly in a single pitch to get to lunchtime ledge but it started raining hard as I got to the crux! The holds were soaked so I reversed most of the climb but had to lower off above the first slab. Quite a tricky descent! I hadn't put much gear in, so I ended up reverse leading, putting gear in by my feet, then taking the gear out from above me. That slab gets pretty slippery in the wet!
Monk - Lead dnf - 23/Jun/12

An enjoyable climb. Gear not too bad if you've got some microwires. The short section of blank slab below the break on p2 has got to be 4b at least.

WARNING! Do not miss first belay and do this in one pitch as the rope drag when trying to get up the featureless, protectionless slab is hellish.

Top slab has very spartan protection but not to steep.

Lead second pitch, good fun and no harder than severe.

CarolineH - 2nd - 05/Oct/07 with Joe

Fine up to the last few meters where I lost confidence in my footwork, smearing on the slab.
pishmishy - 2nd dog - 10/Aug/07 with Bernard

Long run out towards the end of the 2nd pitch on smears and small holds - very testing! Thankfully not too steep.

The runout on the slab was.. um... character building.
MagnusL - Lead O/S - 11/Nov/06 with My mate Paul

Lead first pitch, very easy climbing although with a bit of a run out at one point. Second pitch feels quite exposed at the top of the crack.

Easy first pitch, remeber to protect secound on easy traverse. Secound pitch has long runout that requires good early pro.

Bigedthehead - Lead - 17/Jun/06 with Pete Roberts

Runout on p2. Delicate climbing on slab, unprotectes for 10m
