52m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A wandering outing up the left flank of the cliff with a bit of a bushwhack early on, although it manages to raise its head with some nice climbing in the upper reaches. Done in dry conditions, it provides a surprisingly worthwhile trip - despite appearances to the contrary. Start by a tree on the approach path.
1) 4a, 22m. Follow the cleaned line between the vegetation to the second tree on the wall.
2) 4b, 15m. Trend right across the wall to a niche. Step right out of this, then climb the wall past a bulge to a good, sheltered stance at the break.
3) 4c, 15m. Step left and climb the awkward crack, then slabby rock leftwards to easy ground. © Rockfax

Lead p2 and 3. Mostly a load of rubbish but pitch 2 was very good.

hmm, well it was an experience. not a good route. never any hard moves, and well protected when actually on propper rock; but thats not much of the time... if esoteric, damp, muddy, slippery, bird shit covered vertical gardening/bird watching is your thing then it might just be worth doing.

Quite a bit of vegetation but some hard and bold moves mixed in. HVS.

Not sure how much of this I'd class as climbing, maybe 20-30%. Lots of grass, soil and bird poo. Occasional hint at some decent stuff - pockets on P2 and crack at start of P3 - but didn't last for more than a move or two. It made for a funny day, but not a great climb. Zero stars!

Worst climb I have ever done.

Meh. Very vegetated, lots of bird poo. Would be suicidal if at all wet. A weak 1* for the adventure factor? (lead in 2 pitches)

shame about the dirt, P2 is v. nice and P3 fun but short. Cave is a scene of many a masacre !

Simon Caldwell 01/Oct/11 AltLd O/S

I led joining pitches 1+2, then Carmen led pitch 3. P1 very dirty with good climbing alternating with vegetation and choss. P2 brilliant pocket-pulling to a feather-and-bone-strewn ledge. P3 good start up the crack (easier than it looks) and slab, then fizzles out.

Dom linked P1+2. I led P3. brilliant route, considering it's appearance and singular star in the guidebook. loved the last pitch and the exposure was amazing, a bit tricky pulling into the groove though.

Led 1st pitch. Some patches good rock with interesting moves and varied climbing inbetween lots of greenery. I'm sure any budding botanist would thoroughly enjoy it! Pulling on clumps of grass and sharing belays with bird carcasses & guano were some of the more memorable highlights.

My first multi-pitch climb. Matt led. A bit spooky but a beautiful day. At least until the end when the wind and rain kicked in. Had to be quick and accurate but the pockety limestone was great. Also my first climb on non-quarry limestone. Perfect all the way around.
