25m. Begin at the cut corner left of "I've Started". Take the corner by stepping from the left to gain a niche at three meters. Follow bolts trending left without difficulties ... until the top that is. A direct start (6b) takes the face of the block to the right corner.

Ticklists: Orange Spot Cheddar, West Country Climbs, Road to 7a, cheddar.

Clocks went forward last night *8) Guidebook (Avon and Cheddar) has the direct start as 6b, which Tim did and concurred with the grade. The left hand start felt 6a+, with a sting in the tail. Don't know where pembrokeshirecaver is getting the 6c+ from.

Did the harder right hand start (pretty sure at least). Found the start to be easier than moves at the top but still not sure about F6b as I can't lead this grade (let alone OS). Must be F6a+

Did the direct start, which according to the guidebook is 6b, with harder climbing at the top, I found this grade a sandbag and pumped out. One for another day when I'm more warmed up.

Si dH 16/Jun/10 Lead dog

Did this as a warm-up and had one rest at the top bolt as didn't want to get totally flash pumped (best hold very difficult to find). Found the start much easier than the top. It gets 6a+/6b in the guide we had (the latest one I think) - I think 6a+ is certainly tough for the top; wish Id known it got 6b+ on here and maybe failure would have deflated me a bit less...
