Wow ! this is a great route, has a bit of everything and is quite spicy and run out at the top ! Solid 7c+ if you trust the 2 threads. I tested the first one with a good fall ! (it's easily backed up with a bomber nut)
James Marshall - Lead RP - 05/Jul/14 with Gaz

Stylistically questionable ascent. Makes a great 7c+ sport route, but the trad start is fun.
gazhbo - Lead RP - 29/Jun/14

Felt fairly steady till the last move where there was a decididly out of control lunge. Such a good route one of the best in cheddar
brices - Lead RP - 12/May/14 with james marshal

Fell on the last hard move on the onsite, steady 2nd go.
Cailean Harker - Lead RP - 13/Jul/13

fell out of the 2 finger pocket by the last thread today sooo close but soo hot and sweaty
brices - Lead dog - 08/Jul/13 with Sash

Linked to the left hand crimp just before the last thread 2 more easyish moves to the jugs. Should have gone will be back for this one. Brilliant pumpy climbing basically a sports route with some run outs and a few nuts.
brices - Lead dog - 03/Jul/13 with Gav

7c+ crimpy!!
olliebenzie - 2013

Although not the original way an excellent sport link up by climbing Cheddar Death Knell to the jugs at the base of the groove and then moving right into Taming the Lion to finish. Pre-place a rock 1 in a bomber slot on the crux of Taming the Lion to make it a clip up. 6 B's, 1 peg, T.R and Rock 1. 7c+? ***
marric - Lead RP - 13/Oct/12 with sharpie

Top roped a couple of times, didn't managed to get clean but went for the lead anyway and it went first go. Super psyched!!!!!
