25m. Follow 'Circus Circus' to the roof. The half height bulge is the crux (poor rock!), but tiny edges with a big runout might bar progress into the 'lions eye'. Span right from the white scoop to good finishing holds just right of the belay.

Love this climb, my hardest to date. Took many many sessions, having already climbed lion sleeps tonight. In the end, went smoothly on a beautiful sunny Cheddar evening.

Woohooo - finally. First time I'd ever made it through the first crux: milked the rest and made it to the top. Good lesson - always thought I was miles away so had never _really_ tried to get through the first crux.

Def feel stronger on it that previous years.

Pulled off quite a few holds around the roof. One into my face then down to my belayers head.

Brilliant! 3 sessions. Good beta from Si meant it went quicker than otherwise.

Can do the top crux reliably. First crux with wet jug is proving hard.

Getting close - just cant have too many goes or run out of skin.

Now getting the cruxes down reliably after some good beta from Si. Eats skin on LH index finger!

Linked to 4th move of top crux and linked from undercut to top. Very Sweaty.

Linked most of way through first crux, and did top crux in 2 halves, big improvement from last time.

Great climbing. Linked to the half height crux, but didn't manage the crux itself. Will be back for this one...

Joe Innes 17/Aug/13 Lead dnf

Linked in two halfs to the crux, didn't manage crux move, but will go with some work. Great route, psyched for more soon!!

Need to come back with more psych, lower temps & better skin.

Great route. Good shakeouts before both cruxes means it's probably soft for the grade if not 8a.

Ricky Rocks 18/Sep/09 Lead RP

Brilliant route, Is sure to become a cheddar classic.
