Rockfax Description
A grubby route up the rift, with a choice of lines - sandy and often littered with bottles and cans hurled from the cliff top by escapees from t'City - pillocks! An odd right-hand exit creeps along a ledge below the cliff top - HVD 4a. © Rockfax

As expected, full of broken bottles and cans

rubbish and quite green. Ariel struggled and had to lower her down on this one. Possibly did the HVD ending I suspect as well, but maybe because it was the environment of the gully but thought i was more Severe. Harder than some of the other VD earlier.

Straightforward route, bit harder than it looks (maybe I'm getting cocky now I'm all experienced). Nice lead from Jamie.

Lots of well protected ledges up the RHS of over-size chimney. Using Chimney, layback, and mantelshelf. Value for Money! Slipped on first rock contact - psychology! Got over this and enjoyed. Funny how "safe" gear are the ones which ping out!
