The Whittler** VS 4c
[Whittler Wall, Agden 1976, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
A fine climb up the left-hand side of the smoother face. Exiting the niche at the start is tricky, especially for the short, and gives access to the fine sustained climbing above. From the oak tree in the niche, finish up the arete on the right or the groove on the left. © ROCKFAX

Really enjoyable, right hand exit onto the arÍte out of the cave,
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 28/May/15 with Greg Bristol

With the right hand variation up the small cracks direct rather than the grotty stance, makes it 5a but a much more complete route
Deezel65 - Lead rpt - 13/May/15 with Cragtyke

finished up Lemon Squeezy cracks right of arÍte.

Fairly steep in places but much better and easier than it looks with lots of surprising holds and good climbing with a fantastic view. Finished up the steep juggy corner.
JHiley - Lead O/S - 10/Jul/14 with PCC

With the Lemon Squeezy 5a finish up the twin cracks to the right , gives much better climbing and 2 stars.

This isn't a VS4c and it certainly doesn't deserve 3 stars. I reckon HS 4a maximum, and only 1 star at that. No idea how it ever got the rave write-up it got in my 2-year oold guide book. And I was definitely on the right route. Lots of good gear.

Carmen led in light rain. In 2 pitches, with a belay in the cave at 3/4 height to avoid a heavier shower!

Long reach on the overhang at the bottom for the short! Great route with a lovely exposed step right at the top onto the arete. I used the tree..

Very nice climbing, even though it was a little dirty, use loads of cams, and not much else.
