Dan Hale 16 Nov, 2012 2nd O/S Thought this was quite good. Adventurous and 3d feel to is. Lots of lichenous and 'natural' looking slate pinnacles which made it feel like a mountain route. Feedback on here makes me think I might've misread the guide?

Falko 15 Nov, 2011 2nd O/S As I recall (from extensive reading of 'Asterix the Gaul' when I was a yoof) a Menhir is a man-size standing stone. This route is aptly named because there is a Menhir poised about two thirds of the way up the ramp-line; at about the same level as (but to the right of) the rust streak. I tapped it as I passed (seconding) and got the fright of my life. A large block fell out from behind the Menhir. I managed to trap it just long enough to check that there were no innocent bystanders nearby. It landed a couple of metres from our kit and would have wiped out anyone below! Please take great care when you pass under this route - better still - don't go anywhere near it. As for the climb itself . . . I voted 'Bag of . . . ' - despite it being a Joe Brown route!
