Facing left worked for me. Shame I expended so much effort facing right!

The best route I have done in ages. The first moves were a nice challenge - particularly if, like me, you are 'vertically disadvantaged'.

Traditional progress which I liked - feet at the crux are optional. Simon decided following was unwise.

Didn't really fancy this from the ground but glad Kev & Ange got me to do it. A bit wet and slimy in places today but real fun and interesting couple of moves. It's not everyday I do a thigh jam.

Climbed easy top half laughing as Alex with the camera said "look like you're climbing then". Climb's all over after the first couple of moves.

I started this route that was very damp and slimy. I got up to the crack through the undercut start but couldn't move up any further, Johnny tried and ended up aiding it.
