Three pitches: F6b, F6b+, F6b+
The first 45m pitch can be split at a 2-bolt belay.
Start below sunset buttress. Take the line of bolts on the far right (looking at crag). at top veer right. belay. Climb right again into groove. make tricky moves up groove and trend right along break. belay on top of pinnacle. take bolts and pegs up the wall in front of you until an awkward traverse left past two bolts and a finish up a chossy groove on to the terrace.

Ticklists: West Country Climbs, Cheddar Intermediate, Cheddar Road To 7a Ruins.

I tried to lead P1, but could not make the clip on the crux. At least it was dry this time. Pete and Charlie split P1, with Pete leading the first half. I found P2 and P3 a grade easier than P1, and would grade them at UK 5c (6b+?), 5a (6a?), 5b (6b?).

P1 + P3, bit wet in the middle but great fun

petecallaghan 06/Dec/15 2nd dog

The seepage on P1 made the crux much harder - I ended up aiding over it. P2 was fine, but on P3 the rain came in and Pete took a 15m fall. He then had to aid up on small wires before we ab'd out in the drenching drizzle.

Ben Phillips lead pitches 1+2. I lead pitch 3 but had a cheeky pull on gear on the step across. Great route but nasty top out. I finished on a bolt to the left before going over the top, could have done with extending that one. Look out for ticks up there btw.......

ben.phillips 03/Oct/15 AltLd O/S

Led pitches 0.5 and 3. Started following another line of bolts going high on pitch 3 and then had to down climb to get back on track. Really good route!

Evening climb so just tried to get up it as quick as I could, which included a bit of draw-pulling on the harder bits. One definite crux on each pitch, most of the remainder was fairly straightforward.

Nice - strange grades, though. The second pitch is never 6b+ and the first one (6a+ in the guide) is harder than either of the other two. The 'weirdly jammed ledge' on pitch two moves - not sure if it's supposed to - but didn't actually fall out.

Tru 21/Sep/14 AltLd O/S

Fun climb top pitch is definitely the best. Make sure to use furthest belay to the right on pitch one. Asked Rory to be my best man at the top.

Seconded this; fell on the second pitch as moved across to belay and third pitch on traverse as went left to join another, bolted line near the top. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

actually fluffed the crux on the first pitch - putting that down as a warm up! lead p2+3 clean. great route, great views. p2 i'd say was only a 6b+ if you climb above the shelf that runs level with the terrace - very trick balance traverse then. easier if you step across to the break earlier.

Digga 15/Jun/14 2nd dog

Peeled off the tricky bulge crux on P1 and fell in the chimney last move of P2 (luckily leader clipped first bolt on Sunsations to protect this). Awesome route though, I'll be back. Great views, good exposure and good abseil off too!

magicmartin 13/Apr/14 2nd dnf

Perry lead this and I came up 2nd with Zane. The first pitch (Missing first bolt belay) Wasn't too bad at all but the 2nd crux pitch I REALLY struggled with and ending up pulling on gear. It was late so we Abseiled down from the terrace. One for another day!!

Lead the easy pitch (2) having done it before I let Remus have the good ones. Had work for 9 hours and finished at 10 pm. Picked Remus up at 11 and started by just gone 11.30 and finished by a tidy 3 a.m up and down. Went off route on the first pitch which resulted in some adventures bramble bashing in the dark.. interesting lead. Night climbing is the best way to do routes for sure, although footwork is fairly tricky. Nice calm leads from Remus all the way. another 10 hours work starting early this morning... :/

Good fun. Quite cruxy on all 3 pitches (did it in four). Think 6b, 6b+,6b+ is fair. Both the 6b+ pitches had their cruxes on traverse sections, although the final pitch well-protected for the second at that point. Both took some working out! The final pitch had a bit of a runout at the end with 2 rusty pegs providing some mild comfort...

with Dave
David Martin 16/Apr/11 AltLd O/S

Surprisingly tough. F6b+ seems fair. P1 was interesting and fun and P2 can be a little sketchy moving up to the belay stance. P3 took focus; no ring anchors on the rock, rather topping out on to the grass to a good tree anchor - results in a substantial run out from the last bolt, through two rusty pegs, and up on to the grass.

Fantastic Climbing - dry and almost sunny. weirdly the first pitch felt the hardest. Had an interesting moment with Alex falling just before the pinnacle - fortunately he left in the draw first!! having a slack belay I headed out away from the pinnacle. Great moves on all of the pitches - exposed but not in a bad way. Abbed down in 6! as we onlt had one 50meter rope, very slick though and got down in under half an hour.
