Super route, though the holly at mid height could do with some serious pruning. Felt closer to HS 4b with a big cam, but I'll take the VS 4c tick as per Rockfax!

First route of the day, quite exciting, especially when cold. The traverse out from the chimney and the first couple of moves on the face required a bit of bravery but there was plenty of gear and the upper section eased but really nicer climbing.

Got onto slab of Cold Turkey but couldn't commit to long reach off the leadge as my arms and my testicles seemed too small. Made a weird move right onto this which made for a more relaxed, juggy romp to end the day with - flake approach isn't too hard but is definitely more fun. Really nice climbing.
