Sulky Little Boys*** V7 f7a+ / f7A+
[Sulky Little Boy becomes Happy Little Chappy!, 2 kb]Guidebook Error - This route is wrongly called Supple Wall in the guidebook. The blunt arete is climbed, starting on its right side and spiralling round to the left where a pocket lurks. © ROCKFAX
Classic of the crag. Climb the obvious arete.
