Rockfax Description
Well-protected and delightful climbing. Take small and medium size wires. Start 2m right of the large vegetated corner that defines the left side of the slab.
Move up the slab to a narrow right-facing corner/groove and climb this to a small ledge. Continue up a thin crack and at its end move up right slightly on pockets at the change in angle to below another thin crack. Take the thin crack and easier ground above to the top. © Rockfax

Really not HVS, maybe not even VS

Wendy Watthews 14/Jan Lead rpt
Rob Seymour 25/Nov/17 Lead O/S

Good climbing, warm in late November sun. Soft at this grade. Old ('92) guide says 4c but HVS because of poor pro. Accepts loads of small/middling gear and even a couple of good natural threads, more like VS 4c.

Climbed at Crag C in the morning and managed to flash Marks E2 arete thing in crap style without a warm up, then quickly ran over to Portishead quarry for this route, Mark then had to go about the school run so spent the remainder of the day cleaning another little crag with some new route potential on it.

Starting to look quite worn but this route still eats gear and still a good route.

Beta as I'd belayed Monkey for his lead. Nice climb, not as good as pickpocket and the bottom half is a bit polished. Nice slab climbing at the top provided you don't take the easy bailout options to either side.

with Monkey
Monk 02/Apr/11 Lead O/S

A very nice climb (after the slightly scrappy start) but very soft at the grade, and the guides overhype it's quality, meaning you expect more than you get.
