No? Yes! 01/Sep Lead

Exciting climb - varied moves on 2nd pitch. Agree with others comments - bold 1st pitch particularly up groove.Take secateurs for approach to base and thorny dangles at start of pitch 2

Classic Avon banter. Balloon fiesta but didn't see any of them! As for the route felt typically Avon, care required with not much gear and lots of pegs! Good route but scary E1 for an E1 leader

Range of climbing styles required including some weird body contortions on P2. Good gear is now available on P1, contrary to what others previously said. Approach needs a little gardening still. Agree with new (2017) guidebook upgrade to 5b tech.

Did P1 again - actually 3 (new) pegs is all you get - so you really mustn't fall off! Avon classic!

P1 - then rained off. New pegs make this a very soft E1 - but very nice climb

Good route, very typical Avon style.

Led P1. Nice route. Didn't find any gear until the top of the slab.

Lead both pitches. The flake mentioned in the guidebook on P1 is loose. As a result didn't use it and didn't think it would have taken gear. Best treat start as unprotected until the overlap. Great route. Classic traverse.

Led 2nd pitch. 1st pitch with an additional spicy traverse to remove Ben's off-route protection. 2nd pitch might only be worth HVS, at least if you don't think about the state of the pegs...

Lead p1, poor gear. Stepped right out of groove to find gear and take LH end of overhang. Traverse was tricky too, but much more gear

i led first pitch. wasnt as badly protected as the guidebook made out (still not great). room full of mirrors that gets hvs 5a seemed scarier the other day to me so dont know where that leaves this. I'd say soft e1 but if thats the case then RFOM should probably be upgraded.

Some nicely bold but straight-forward climbing on the 1st pitch (Gives it the E1 grade). Traverse was fairly straightforward in comparison. Typically Avon - in that it had a lot of rusty pegs!!

Led quickly before the swelling became prohibitive after doing a 15ft face-plant near enough breaking my nose and wrist whilst bouldering to warm up. Watched the rugby later through blurry eyes. Lovely sun, decent climb. Great days.

also did what was known as 'Maltravers Right' in those days - 1st pitch of Maltravers then up to the L end of the OH then R across the slabs to arete + up that... bit loose IIRC - HVS 5a. Maltravers itself was HVS 4c 4c back then
