βeta: The Potting Shed is very dirty and crumbley. Being a bit heavy I was not too comfortable on the dried mud. Bolt in the groove is very low and over the ledge - just below the dirty crux where you might fall off and smack your knees in before the rope comes tight!

βeta: Right again, up the deep corner, is The Potting Shed - a newly retrobolted F6a (I think). Watch out for some slightly creepy ivy roots in the congolmerate at the top of the corner - they are very, very dusty.

βeta: Unpleasant? Disjointed? Its a good route! Finger jam up the crack to the roof and then a very satisfying sequence of moves out from the roof. A big reach is handy though I'm not exactly tall (5'10").

Fakey Rocks 5 Jul, 2017 Lead dog B3-4 a bit run out, but holds ok. Got to b4, the one out left from mini roof, get good rest just below miniroof too, then found it desperate, and very run out to the lower off... Presume hands on the big left flake up there is not in? Can see several scars where hand/ foot holds have peeled off. Nice jamming, good moves, sketchy at top, could still pump out on those high jugs below lower off ... a worry to clip lower off, even off those jugs, if pumped! Quite sustained, + Pretty tired from trying VoF! High 6b?
