Not sure how eliminate the right hand side at the top is; I used a few sidepulls - but people who seem to have gone more direct also seem to think it is much harder than 6a so I suspect it is OK as long as you aren't getting too ridiculous...

The Norris - Lead dog - 24/Jul/12 with Gem

Tricky with the light fading. Spotting foot holds in the dark. Will have to re asses this one in the light.

Hawkgirl - Lead dog - 15/Jul/12

tommytom - Lead dog - 01/Jul/12

Top couple of moves are fine - just got to look for the holds/moves and think about it a bit. They may be 6a+ but only because it's not obvious. But on the plus side you can spend as long as you like looking - just down climb to the ledge if your getting pumped.

Last ledge for foot hold is mega polished!!! Like someone has been up with some Mr sheen spray and a whole bunch of elbow grease - I could see my face in that baby!
rob514 - Lead dog - 10/Jul/11

No stars in our eyes on this one. Polished. Sketchy belay slope. Didn't enjoy the last few moves. Not an ideal intro to Cheddar climbing!
