Mr Ranger* VS 4c
[Paul, gripped on Mr. Ranger, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
Start in the corner just right of Yogi. Climb the corner-crack and then the crack directly above this to a grassy ledge. From a spike, move up and left onto another narrow ledge and climb up the right arete via ledges to a final tricky move to a ledge. Traverse left to belay as for Yogi. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Go right from Smarter than the average bear, into the inside corner. Climb the corner crack to the bottom of the final slab of Yogi. Could be broken into two pitches at a large ledge just above the broken blocks.

Ticklists: Craig Bwlch y Moch Starred VS Challenge.

Led P1. Jeannie led top pitch of Yogi to finish. Crux move is the entry to the slab and the gear is below you at that point. Not a pushover at VS, but worth seeking out.

Nearly ran out of steam on the final crack at the top of the first pitch.
Eddie Roberts - 2nd O/S - 17/Jul/14

Nice little corner to climb. Thought the 4c crux was low down before getting into the corner propper.

Second Trystan Lea, very nice climb with a few little tricky parts but thoroughly enjoyed it. Struggled to start the first bit but once over I was fine, very nice move at the top of the first part

Within the grade, it alternates from tricky and safe to easy and bold. The slab to the right of the Yogi layback offers a little more exposure (but equally, no gear). A lovely route if not too wet.

recently cleaned - which meant the lower cracks were full of mud so had to dig out the placements, but the climbing was clean. I really enjoyed this route

HS, 1 pitch
Starlight2 Rob - 2nd dog - 02/Jul/11 with Mike

Definitely not the route that goes by this name in the guidebook. Awesome first pitch in the groove and crack, makes a much better outing than yogi or smarter than the average bear. Highly recommended

This is a lot harder/bolder than yogi and that gets VS? now it's been cleaned its a nice route but be careful with the blocks at the top of the groove

P1 has some large loose blocks, still very mucky too, can't recommend this route at all - gear also poor on first half of P1. Led P2 the layback crack for yogi.

HS for sure - too well protected and too many rests to be VS. Great line though and sure to become very popular now it's been exposed during the recent tree felling.
