Visited 11th Sept 06 on a fine dry day.The climbonline download guide is right to emphasise a warning about the grades being 30 years old. We must be getting soft, we started with Left Escalator at HS 4a. We had to swop lead after a steep start but there are three good threads on the way up. It was steep but enjoyable once you got gear in but we thought worth 4b ! Our next effort was Master's Groove at VS 4b**. Again we had to swop leads with the first of us backing off above the first crux.I lead through and thankfully found a stuck wire in the overhang. I pulled through but as I was on the "finish on grassy ledges" something gave way and I took a 35ft fall through a tree landing upside down below my belayer. My helmet saved me from no worse than a grazed forehead and bruised groin from the rope ! I enjoyed the climb though we thought it worth a good 4c. My partner said I could have the tick !|
