Brackets HVS 5a
[The Eponymous Brackets., 2 kb]13m. Follow the line of old pipe brackets to the right hand end of the concrete balcony.There are some very loose flakes at the start of the climb(if they come off they may change the grade)but the brackets although looking a bit disconcerting are in fact quite sound and make this almost a sport route.

Gear every metre if you want it -- clip the maillons on the brackets, thread nuts behind the brackets, or tie them off with slings! The climbing is quite pleasant.

The climbing is a little different now that Mark has removed several large flakes in the lower section.

levered off all the big loose flakes at the start so is all reasonably solid now.

Straight after mark had cleaned it making the lower section much safer. Take lots of quickdraws!

2 stars?!? Would struggle to give it one even without the shocking start. WEIRD Route.
Stanners - 2nd O/S - 02/Sep/11 with Mark Davis, Jack Bradbrook

Absolutely bizarre! To be honest I think this is worth doing just because of the peculiar gear. Be very careful on the first 5 meters however as everything is very loose!
