Nice climbing until the final overhang. Messed up the sequence half way up and had to rest but OK on the second go. The move left out of the overhang to the left hand bolts seemed impossible despite a number of tries so finished up to the (new?) bolts on the right (directly above the line) which was a lot easier even if there is a tree in the way.

No rest until the end. Last move was beyond me. Rain definitely didn't help.

Went a bit all over the place, ended up on the 6A+ line to the left for a couple of sections (although this made for a cool little traverse). New anchor put in at the top? Doesn't seem to correspond to the guidebook? Fun route though.

Really tricky top section, clip sticked the last part on the left should have gone right

Beth pulled a book sized rock off this and called it a day, I followed up and cleaned up as much of the loose rock around the broken jug as I could, but be wary that there still may be loose holds on this

Really enjoyable climb. Not sure if I went for the right anchor at the top. Went the direct line up slightly to the right of the roof. Rock fax advises the anchor to the left which seems of route, did attempt to try this attempted a stomach traverse followed by slapping the face of the roof trying to get a decent hold.

Not bad, got lost and headed left which made it tricky, downclimbed a bit and traversed right. Easier when back on the right line!
