[Ben on 'Human Zoo' 7b+/c, Lion Rock, Cheddar., 3 kb]Gain a ledge from the left, then follow a line of layaways until a traverse left leads to a shakeout. Blast through the steep section above on undercuts to reach some good holds and a final tricky move. Holds come and go, so the grade is a bit variable.

Great route! Glad to be able to get it.
Tomar - Lead RP - 09/Jul/12 with James m.

Good sustained route. The crucial tiny crimp over the roof looks solid for the time-being.

Fell on undercuts in bulge on the onsight, not surprised cos that move is desperate - BIG lock off the undercut! Dogged to the top to clock sequence n got it next go, chuffed!
