Barney Rubble** VS 4c
[Ian leading Barney Rubble, VS 4c, at Dovestone Tor, 3 kb]20m.

Rockfax Description
Jugtastic, and a bit bold too. Start 5m right of the gully, just right of a block on the ground. Climb into the left-hand sandy cave then continue up juggy rock above. Pull through the prominent notch in the flat roof, to an easy finish. © ROCKFAX

Glorious jug hauling until you get caught out by the roof and have to switch on your head for a second.
GermanAlex - Lead O/S - 08/Jun/14 with Jack

Hidden - Lead O/S - 31/May/14

Looked intimidating from the bottom. This is probably partly due to the fact that it's not really possible to step back from the base of the crag to take in the route, so the steep section looks imposing. But there are plenty of great holds to be found. Just place your gear below the crux and pull your way through.

Absolutely hilarious, I chuckled all the way. Ridiculous jug fest up the steep lower section where each hold was a bigger, more improbable jug than the last. Nicked the thread from fred which made the section to the pull onto the slab above feel safe as houses. Loved the move onto the slab, just superb all round.

A superb route up the steep overhanging wall on a series of good jugs. All the gear you want. Very 3D but in an interesting and enjoyable way. Very rounded holds at the top of the main wall make for an interesting exit. Maude's face was hilarious coming over the top. Really good.

Stig - 2nd O/S - 11/Aug/08 with Charlie Reade-Jahn

Felt pretty easy really although slightly poorly protected. Some of the rock is a little rotten but the route is brilliant! Jug fest all the way up from the bottom to the niche, you feel like some sort of hulk on a VS! Got round the niche with not too much difficulty, used the big slot to the left for my left hand a little just to get in balance think that was ok! Moved straight up the slab slightly right if anything to reach the clump of grass. Was unsure whether to take a belay there so I could try and get in contact with Matt because it was extremely windy, decided it was impossible even from there so thought I'd get up to the top anyway and figure it out from there. Set up a belay and luckily the belayer of the climber next to me took a peek round the niche so I put a thumbs up to him and pulled on the rope and Matt got the idea. Matt seemed to struggle a bit more getting round the niche but enjoyed it all I think!
