25m. An adventurous pitch, which is quite intimidating for the grade. Start 5 metres right of Strappados, at a peg and nut belay. Step right from the belay and climb a crack back leftwards and up past a tree stump (runner) to a break under an impressive chimney. Enter the chimney using a crack and jugs on the right (giant crusty thread deep in chimney). Pull over a bulge, and climb a crack, thread, until a difficult move must be made to exit to ledges. Giant thread belay with cable strop. Abseil off.

Fun moves on big holds. Bit weird (pigeons!) and overgrown at the moment though.

Good climbing, bit overgrown at the top. Must return with suitable agricultural implements...

Lovely route. Little bit of a pain getting to the belay on the left at the top though due to the brambles

bit weird, maybe improved with traffic. Saw a vole in a crack half way up.

Nice varied rocks and moves, albeit mostly straightforward. Needs more traffic to clean loose rock

Amazing climb! It's technical, steep, well protected and best of all..... it's an Avon VS that's NOT POLISHED!!! There's a few suspect pieces of rock, so be careful what you hold on to! Defo deserves a star!!

Seconded M's lead. Adventurous path from the top to gain access which adds to the experience. Nice route in the shade with only a little road noise. *

What a route! Steep, technical and bomb proof gear all the way. Plus a kamikaze pigeon!!

A good addition to the Avon VS's. Sadly the chimney does not require anything too devious

A VS that I haven't climbed at avon?! Brilliant climbing with an adventurous feel. That chimney is cool. Well worth a star.
