Warm up. Felt quite stiff.
Nick Russell - Lead O/S - 06/Oct/13 with Alex Winter

Led on Nick's gear. Nice line.
Alex Winter - Lead O/S - 06/Oct/13 with Nick

Quite high in the grade. Excellent layback finish!
R2B - Lead O/S - 05/Oct/13 with Charlotte

I thought solid E1 (certainly compared to avon) A bit overgrown too. Shame the anchor bolts are low down. Looks like the last couple of meters would be quite pleasant.

I remember climbing with ed, it's not meant to be relaxing!

Ran out of quickdraws about half way up so turned it into a two pitch climb.

Not the best start to trying to climb my first E1. Ripped a hold at first thread height and lowered down to start again. More like a top end HVS 5a to be honest. Fantastic fun! Shame about vegetation in crack at the top.
Stanners - Lead RP - 13/Jul/11 with Martin Stanfield, Jack Bradbrook

Regarding the grade its E0 5a in my opinion. Fantastic positions and well protected a Cheddar classic. Its also the only obvious weakness in an otherwise blank overhanging section of rock which makes it quite aesthetic.

Paul Robertson - Lead rpt - 09/Dec/10 with Guy Percival

With the gear already in (and a sneaky quickdraw-aided retreat to the ledge halfway up after groping a plant instead of a hold). Hardly my usual level of dogging, though.
RedFox - Lead dog - 17/Oct/10 with Tom K

Single pitch with bolt belays so we all lead

Excellent steady route. Both threads look weak but you dont need to use them as good wires protect all the hard moves
Urgles - Lead O/S - 06/May/08 with Brian (bpm climb)

A really good climb up a strong natural line, with plenty of exposure
