Starting as for ‘Three Pounds Per Tonne’ move up and step right to the first bolt runner. Climb directly up a small tricky groove-let to find a hidden bucket then surmount the final prominent bulge fairly easily. Easier (F5) if you start (more logically) from the large ledge and use holds on the right. Four bolts.

Think I took a slightly dodgy line, halfway up I couldn't find anything that I was happy with (some slippy footholds and every handhold seemed to slope the wrong way) so at that point I bottled it and traversed off left. Sure its easy enough when you don't think your going to slip. Limestone feels pretty technical. Have to come back for it. Should have tried the F5 variation instead!

Start of the route seemed to make no sense at all. Why not just make a direct start? Felt much, much harder than 5c but first time at cheddar and hadn't been climbing for a while.

Not totally sure I followed the correct line, certainly not trivial for a 5 but well bolted.

Emily 30/Jul Lead dnf

Another 5+ that is clearly harder than 6b. Also I seem to have hurt my pinky finger in trying really, really hard on this and falling off anyway.

Managed to mess it up on the first try, then on the second just before the first clip my hand slipped, I overbalanced and fell, bruising my heel.

Getting used to Cheddar limestone, so seemed harder than it is. Half way up you need to stretch a bit further above to find the nice jug...
