27m. Scramble up from the right to trees at the base of the slab a few feet right of the corner. Climb easily for 3m. Make harder moves up to reach runner placements where the crack starts. Climb the crack steeply to a large ash, then follow the widening crack easily up rightwards.

Nice route, with really only a small section at HVS. There is new abseil tat and ring at the top to the right so thanks to the philanthropist for supplying that (Ian?)

Well protected but quite sustained until you get to the tree then its a romp. Great route.

Good route but ledge at start of hard section is currently covered in brambles which is a bit of a mare - really needs a good garden following the ban. Some sustained climbing. First limestone slab for a long time - got a bit of disco leg.

2 or 3 tricky moves but very pleasant. Again dries quickly.

My second outdoor climb. The rock was really wet and slippery so I was pretty pleased with the result!

I had to rescue Jason as he'd bitten off a little more than he could chew. Lovely crack but the crux was a little too short, maybe 1 or 2 finger kams and it was over.

mmmm - crux is approx 1/3rd into route, up a very vertical face with a thin crack and small - 'hidden' foot holds. Fell 2/3 way up this part of the route, top runner pulled out (I think it was too small and pulled out the botton of the crack) fell approx 3m onto ledge, next bit of pro held. Bruising to lower back and shoulder. - Found my limit for now, glad I was wearing a helmet! Climbing on double ropes. Did not second after Andy M completed route (1 fall, his pro held!) - he had a hell of a time trying to retreive the pro during the absail with the ab-point off to the left of the slab
