[Barbarian, Cheddar 7b+, 3 kb]Start at the right-hand end of the dusty ledge at 4m. Climb up on large holds to a high first bolt and power through the roof stack to layaways on the right. Pull over leftwards to a good shakeout. Climb the groove above for a couple of metres, swing left and pull up to a thin crack (optional wire placement, e.g. rock 3) which leads through the final bulges to a lower-off.

Ticklists: Cheddar Sevens.

First go today putting the draws in (except first 3). Fell off top 3 times last year and one poor effort earlier this year. Nice that it feels easy now.
