Saint Gregory The Wonder Worker* HS 4b
[Jenny leading 2nd pitch of 'St Gregory The Wonder Worker' in Anstey's Cove, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
The long, low-angled slab on the left-hand side of the hanging basin provides the only easyish 'up' route of note at Anstey's Cove. The climbing is open, but also serious with minimal protection, and requires a steady leader. Start at the base of the slab.
1) 30m. Head up the middle of the slab to a belay on a metal quarry-spike where the upper wall rears up. The slab is straightforward but lacks any significant protection.
2) 4b, 23m. Traverse left for 4m to an arete and climb this to a ledge below the upper overhangs. Traverse rightwards to clear the overhangs and climb easy, but broken rock to the top and a fence post belay. © ROCKFAX

First pitch had hardly any gear at all. Nice slab climbing though. Second pitch has a better feel with a nice traverse to start, followed by lots of good gear and a fixed seized cam. Top out super loose rock, requires careful climbing.

minexplorer - AltLd - 10/Jul/11 with grant newcombe

led 1st pitch.theres good protection midway(drill holes,2 cam,5 hex)an also on the hard crux(2.5cam,thread)why has it been bolted?did use the 2 belay bolts tho, as following bolt line(better)takes u away from original belay spike.luke led 2nd pitch

Serious, should be bolted (along with a load of protectionless lower-grade routes in TQ)
