Nut key used to clean the moss off. A brush would be good too. Underneath it's a nice route.

Needs a lot more traffic!

Everything is crumbling. The whole climb is exfoliating. Hence, abandoned the attempt low down. Tried to escape to the left first, but found unprotected moves on highly suspicious rock (an attempt to place a nut resulted in the surrounding rock just crumbling away). Finally diverted to the right onto the Flying Bink, which was also dangerously loose at the top. With a lot of care, got up that one. I won't be going back to that part of the quarry. Top looks like there has been a mud slide or similar recently.

I lost Jon's No. 2 Cam for him on this route - interesting, with a very thrutchy top-out!

clipped a cam to my belay loop when making a reach from a slippy foothold at the top, but didn't weight it

Found this quite tricky. Overhead lobbing of hexes required for the top part.

Why on earth does this climb get 2 stars in the last 2 editions of the SMC's Lowland Outcrops?!? It is a quirky and not particularly clean VS. No, this is not a VDiff or a Severe! Are other people just trying to make aspiring VDiff leaders give up climbing, or are they too used to classic VDiff sandbags at Stanage??

Entertaining enough but not a VS or anything like 4c. Would make a decent Severe or a fairly tricky V Diff.
