In reply to DorsetGareth: Yes it has been completed, it used to have a much easier set of footholds on the bottom board and was completed by quite a few of the regulars and was even reversed. Since the footholds were changed (8+ years ago) I know of 5 people have completed it but there maybe more. It is now considered with the current footholds and polish to be about french 8a.
It must be one of the longest standing circuits on an indoor wall!
In reply to DorsetGareth: Which problem is it? Its obviously not the one in the corner because thats fairly straightforward. Wish I had that training facility near me instead of having to pay a tenner a time in London.
Seem to remember the traverse with the fish being good.
As you step through the door, go right around the corner, and there's about a 10 degree overhanging wall - it's all on there. Have seen many people working on the fishes, looks hard, but haven't tried it myself.
White 1-60 is a beautifully thought out climb - really like it!
In reply to DorsetGareth: I know the problem you mean know, it sort of backs onto the cave. I've got to number 18 on it ( ive tried it loads though). I really like the route that traverses back and forwards over the cave. John is a really nice guy and can still climb pretty well in his slippers!
I got my mother in law hooked on climbing taking her down there for a bit of toproping.
The only problem is its always freezing when I climb there because I go to Cornwall during the christmas holidays.
