The imposing looking crack moving right under two roofs is well protected and sustained.

Fell near the top after the large hold I was using, fell off smacking me in the face as it went. Hate not being able to trust that the holds won't break off. Got back on and finished even with a slightly throbbing lip. Suppose I was being lazy and tired not spreading my weight over a couple of holds as the wall was quite crumbly. Some bold moves on suspect rock.

Made mess of this, didn't take enough gear, got scared, was getting dark, for some reason bottled it 30 cm from the top and rested on cam, excellent climbing though, traverse is quite necky.

first E2 (ignoring towerface direct at stanage) a couple of loose holds on the first bit - bomber 2 cam. more exposed than it looks and thank god for that peg under the second roof. good to lower off a trad route!

lovely and sustained- i placed too much gear and got a bit pumped toward the end.traversing under the roof probably the crux, a bit of a space walk, then the footholds dissapear! great stuff. weird lowering off a trad route.very convenient hh though.

Alex led all. Hard first pitch, a terrible battle through the overhanging jungle of pitch 2 and a thrutchy unprotected offwidth crack to finish. Five and a half hours!

Have marked my 30p 'Climbers Guide to Cheddar Gorge' (Dearman & Riley 1970) with various comments including 'Hard, loose, no pro' for Pitch 1, (climbed and described an alternative to the original P1 @ 120ft, 5C), lots of ivy on P2, ran P3 and 4 together and scribbled 'excellent climbing' in guidebook.
