Really good route, went quite easily in the end once I sorted my feet out - Cheddar Feet! Tough Start, draws are fine to clip but quite strenny at the start with a techy move to easy ground past the fourth bolt...
eddieclimb - Lead RP - 10/Aug/13 with Dan Savory, Dan Webber

One go, putting in bolts. One quick go in dark with head torch, on top rope. Not certain about the line, felt like I was straying onto the trad route out to the right.
