Start at the left arete of the cave entrance. Climb up for a few metres and move right above the cave to a good hole. Move up to a hand-rail and get stood on it. Continue to finish via a tiny groove.
An 8a variation climbs directly from the hand-rail to the lower-off, keeping left of the HBD bolts.

Ticklists: Cheddar Sevens, Classic UK F7s.

Got it after quite a few goes, long and pumpy especially the top, fell of clipping the last bolts though so does it really count....

Fell off the last two moves on my second go. Damm it! Next time I will redpoint it properly.

Day 1 session. Done everything individually, including all clipping. Reasonably comfortable with leading everything from the ledge up, but lacking power and coordination with linking all of the lower moves which chipped away at the beans.

Blew half of the day trying to crank up the blank face before realising the holds were to the right! Got all the moves now, just need to link when fresh. Pretty cool to take a big lob from up high and swing into the mouth of the cave :)
