Anchovy Madonna*** E3 5c
At last something a bit easier and it is well worth the wait! This is one of the best mid-grade extremes of the area with some superbly positioned climbing. From the stance swing ape-like up the bulging wall until things get a bit thin around the lip. Continue upwards with the odd wire or two required near the top. French 6b ish. © ROCKFAX

thought this route was good. IMO Reckon it would be better with just one bolt for the crux. Only saying as other people seem to be swinging the other way :) The first bits would be protectable with trad gear.
Ewan Russell - Lead O/S - 24/Sep/11 with Tom Nichols

Hidden - Lead - 08/Jul/11

Cool big moves on jugs followed by some thinner technical stuff. One more bolt (or a rock 8) would make this a great 6b+.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 25/Jun/11 with Rich Cannell

Just make it a sport route. Awkward moves!
