I have replaced the hanger that was missing, to do this I removed a low down hanger from the route two to the right. That route has another bolt 3ft above it and is easy to clip.
If I go back I will put a hanger back on it, but at least Heady Days is fully climbable. Good route

Still do-able if you take a nut to thread over the missing bolt

The third bolt above the ledge is missing a hangar, making the steep moves around the roof pretty spicy.

Gutted. I got all the way to the chains and to the left of them on sloping holds. If the drews were in I could have clipped them. However, I will take the fact that I never cheated and grab the rings. Instead I held the rope and took my first sports fall outside. Nothing to it.. class route. Will get it next time for sure. 3***s

One of my more memorable 'bolted rock climbs'. Exciting and good fun. Rather pumped clipping the belay but pleasantly surprised that my fitness can't be too shocking at the mo! First half is a nice warm up to the significantly more tricky second half. 3 stars seems fair.

Enjoyed the first bit: good technical climbing. Rested at the roof though: too thuggy for me and had to resort to tiny crimps where the others hand jammed. Must feed hands more pies.

Listen to jack1996 because speaking from his extensive climbing experience that he has accumulated from nearly 100 routes at a range of grades under E1, most of which being grotty quarry classics. He is convinced this is "a lovely route with amazing views!" too bad I didn't find that fat off rest he must have got among that series of roofs otherwise I may have been able to stop and take in that amazing scenery of some dense woodland that he got.
It’s basically Exactly as Mark described it "a bit of a thugs route” Just big moves on good holds in steep ground. Didn't feel like particularly imaginative climbing if I'm honest you might as well go to a climbing wall instead if you want to find a route with this level of complexity.
