Still Waters Run Deep*** 7b
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.

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!
vertigo - Lead RP - 26/Sep/15 with Eric

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......
JackMac - Lead dog - 27/Jun/15 with dparsons

Should go after learning top section moves. As long as i don't forget.

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.

Caspian Johnson - Lead RP - 17/May/14 with Tor

First RP. Brilliant climbing from the overlap upwards. Was feeling pretty shoddy on it, but decided to have a punt on redpoint after Nick cruised it. Managed to wobble and grunt up it just before dark.
Alex Winter - Lead RP - 15/Oct/13 with Nick

Sweet route, the crux sequence is awesome and extremely satisfying! First 7b, went first RP!

Paz - Lead rpt - 11/May/09 with TS2

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).
