[James Jackson on the first ascent of Yet Another Bristolian Affair, VS 4c, 2 kb]20m. Entry Wall Area. Start opposite the end of the last man-made wall on your right, under a slightly overhanging arete. Climb the arete to a small flake. Climb the overhanging arete (crux), trending leftwards, and gain a stepped ramp running up the slab. Ascend this, continue directly up the arete, and finish with care up vegetated slopes to a large tree. Loose in places.

Just about the only part of the quarry in sun, so thought I'd lead this. Pulled off a breeze block sized chunk near the start (just left of the actual line) and the ropes dislodged another large piece higher up. Gear is spaced and mostly behind semi detached blocks. 4c section is short lived and easy for the technical grade (if you can trust what you are pulling on), but with no good gear and atrocious rock this is no pushover for VS. Not one I'll be repeating. Partner had a nasty slip in the descent gully too (bruises and grazes to show for it). XS 4c?

The low crux is just about 4c; the rest of the climbing is considerably easier. Not a safe climb, however - all the more promising placements turn out to be behind detached blocks.
