Tobacco Road* VS 4c
[Unknown climber starting the delicate slab traverse on Tabacco road, Daddyhole, 2 kb]A good little pitch that gives a gentle introduction to the climbing and atmosphere of the crag. Start behind a huge boulder below the mid-height overhang at the left side of the landward face of the cliff. 25m. Move up the wall on good holds to the golden-coloured wall beneath the big overhang. Pass beneath the overhang leftwards to the rib, then climb to the top on slightly suspect rock. © ROCKFAX

Not a great route lots of loose looking rock and dubious gear coupled with (hard to avoid) rope drag and a horrible top out!!

Massive rope drag - more thought around overhang needed. Remember to protect that loose last section!

A great route, just a shame it's not longer and the traverse a bit harder. Despite my best efforts, rope drag at the top was massive!

nice climb placement can cause a draggy rope some loose rock but nice. belay stance solid at top pleanty of nut placements
kyebrooks - Lead O/S - 26/Feb/11

Better rock than it looked. Careful ropework needed to avoid jamming rope, very loose top. Shame the climb ended so quickly.
