Traditional in nature: dirty, loose, vegetated and awkward. Cheddar Gorge transferred to the N Devon coast. Worth doing though.

I climbed the blank wall just to the left of Urizen, as a second following Richards lead. It's probably 5b technically, and would be a HVS/VS? if protected using the crack.
