[Where be that climber?, 2 kb]A photogenic sport route at the far right hand side of "The Bluff". Use a few wires or a long "stick clip" to reach the 1st bolt. Steady climbing up the arete and you will arrive at the boulder problem crux. A balancy move into a good left hand pocket followed by the crux moves lead you to a slopey ledge. Move leftwards and upwards to a BB.

Spacetourist - Lead O/S - 19/Jun/11 with Dan Jenkin, Rosea

7b? If this was by the road it wouldn't get any more than that. Scrappy route but great position

Cowflinger - Lead RP - 06/Nov/10 with Pete Lewis

2nd go today. Had one go a few months ago. Pretty soft.
Richard Hall - Lead RP - 04/Oct/10 with Howard

Got first red point - Easy for grade, difficulties only short, prob 7b+
eddieclimb - Lead RP - 22/Aug/10 with Rebecca Edwards

I eventually managed all the moves with 'Gaz' belaying. Not particularly inspiring but alright for the route. I would say it is harder than the 7b+ that I have done, but I equally think those have been a bit easy...tough to grade for me now.
