Did the lower section which was nice back and footing then a swing around but didn't do the second bit. Tried and got halfway up to just below the ledge which was covered in grass & mud and was wet & green so backed off. Also looks like a foot hold has recently broken off..

nice but short with small but adequate gear.

A wide flaring and awkward thrutch thankfully with good gear where you need it. Should get at least HS although I've done easier VS climbs on easier graded crags like stanage.

Vintage thrutching. A good laugh.

Fell off out of chimney and bounced on the ledge when the grass/mud I was pulling on came off. Ouch. A traditional back and footing chimney exercise that gets HS 4b in latest guide.
