[Matt Cox on 'Homegrown' F8a+, The Remnant, Cheddar., 3 kb]The Remnant. Hard moves off the ground lead to a powerful move into an undercut, then another powerful long move to a jug. Easier to finish but still tricky.

Hidden - Lead dnf - 12/Apr/14

Was informed by locals last year that from the undercut, Homegrown stepped right into Wrist Business, shared a couple of moves with that route then went back left- so that's what I did. It didn't seem very satisfying; it felt like Homegrown should be more independent and not just a tricky start to Wrist Business. So this year I did it properly- straight up from the undercut. It's not perfect in that it still shares a hold (inevitable, with routes so tightly packed), but it is, at least, a harder, independent sequence. And it's proper 8a+ too, and not a cop out. I assume (but I don't know this for certain) that the first ascent went this way.

Worked out a sequence and a few small links

Hidden - Lead - Aug/12

Should have got the onsight but a small snail had decided to make its home in a crucial pocket meaning that a clean ascent on the day would have been almost impossible.

Excellent route, such good moves and surprisingly pumpy for a short route.

marric - Lead RP - Apr/11 with sharpie

4th session. Great route, found the bottom crux desperate and the next bit not too bad. The good press in top groove won't last much longer!
