Easy but friable lower wall to a rest below the overlap. A superb sequence leads to better holds and a move left onto slabbier terrain. Recover then push on up to the big overlap and step left to a lower-off.

Ticklists: Cheddar Sevens, Littlejohn South West Climbs.

Disappointed not to get it in on 2nd redpoint. Foot popped off unexpectedly on the easier final section, post crux when about to clip. Took quite a big fall just as I was thinking it was in the bag! Next time.

Superb route, flows really nicely all the way. The long move to the crimp rail above the overlap is pure class. Pleased (and surprised) to get in a session!

Felt straight forward enough once I got my nutrition right. 3 Welsh cakes, packet of hob nobs, 4 gram creatine washed down with tin of redbull. Now I have an out of control caffeine addiction, but at least this route is off the tick list. Huge sugar come down an hour later after trying Sherryland.

Beautiful route. Climbed in two clean overlapping parts with an unfortunately foot slip in the middle :( Really hope to have another go before the ban......

Got all the moves not too bad, some of them were a bit tricky to figure out, and even once I got them to work on the second go I would completely change my mind about how to do them. Was starting to get dark before I could really rest in time for a proper redpoint attempt with the beta more figured out, will back early next year with some power endurance to finish it.

Failed to do it putting the clips in once more but very nice to do it again, and really good to let others have a good time on it on an otherwise totally grim evening (after the first two moves this really is the last route in Cheddar to stay dry after rain).
