Very hard to get off the ground. Now retrobolted and straightened out.
Start below the left edge of an overlap at 4m. Gain an incut hold just over the overlap and pull through to a rest. Continue on excellent rock to an abseil station above.

Nice. First move OK with a dynamic approach. Made our own clipstick for the first bolt due to the potential for both falling off the terrace - we are not going to start clip-sticking, it's evil!

Got it! Spent a while working on the moves from first to second bolt, then only had to do them on lead once. Cheated a little bit with a long draw in the chains so I could clip before the last scary move.

Warm up, putting the clips in for Emily

It's all in that one move at the start! Above that, the climbing was brilliant - had me smiling all the way up (ok, the sun may have had something to do with that too).

Tried and tried and tried to get off the ground - just about managed it eventually. Then pretty nice until the scary top which I only managed after clip-sticking the chains. Would consider coming back to this.

I'm 6ft 1, and very weak, and I can't do starts like this - at all! No chance... nice climbing above tho, which meant the misery at the start was worth it.
