Box of Delights* HS 4b
[DpmUK leading Box of Delights, 2 kb]21m. Just as the name suggests a whole lot of beautiful climbing on superb rock. One of the best Hard Severes on the Culm Coast. Start at a thin line of weakness below the highest point of the overlap. 21m. Make a difficult move to leave the ground before heading up leftwards to gain and use cracks that lead to the overlap at its highest point. Pull through at the apex and take the easier crack in the wall above to the top. © ROCKFAX
A well-named route that follows the crack through the highest break in the overlap to finish right of the pancake.

Ticklists: West Country Climbs, Climbing with kids, HS Climbs to do in Summer 2014.
