82m, 3 pitches. The first pitch starts with a difficult semi-mantle onto a sloping hold then presses on steeply to the belay. The moves off the belay on the second pitch are difficult and precarious (take care) but lead to lovely open and bold climbing on the left side of the upper wall. A route at the high end of the grade overall.

rowland penty 3 Aug AltLd Well we tried three times to climb this. The second time we actually were on the right route but thought we werent. We climbed something else, joined at the first belay, then climbed some more rock but have no idea if we were on route. Abseiled off a tree. ????

Trevers 21 Jul 2nd dog Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Where to begin? Honza led the first pitch, which is scrappy and has a scary starting mantel that I wouldn't want to lead, especially with the steep slope and smashed glass beneath. // I decided to go for the lead on P2. Hard moves off the belay to the first peg without great protection, followed by a long runout to the tree. I then got suckered into trending too far right after the tree. Ledge after ledge of steep moves without any protection to speak of, definitely E1 5a territory. Ended up under a thin groove with a few pegs under a tree. Got horrendous cramping claw fingers when going to clip the second peg, managed not to fall. Could find no way up or down, sat on the peg awhile before lowering off the peg to the belay. // Honza went up to lead instead and didn't find a more obvious way. Tried to climb the same groove I backed off from and came off unexpectedly by the top peg and took a long fall, bashing his ankle on a ledge below. I caught the fall but there must have been a lot of slack in the system with the huge runouts. He managed to haul himself up eventually and then brought me up too. Annoyingly I slipped off by the top peg too. // Honza was fortunately alright and was able to limp back out to the car. No idea what route we were actually on, it doesn't seem to match the description for Let Us Prey and felt more technical than 5b near the top, so who knows. I'm certainly not particularly keen to go back up to work out where Cheetah actually goes.

Apart from one placement just off the belay, it's 3 pegs and two small trees on the entire pitch. Just need to keep calm and carry on... Abbed off after P2. 50m ropes were fine.

P2 ed didn't read guide and went up most of let us prey (looked like a terrifying lead but he enjoys soloing E3 slabs in the peaks), occasionally had to tread on damp muddy bits which didn't inspire confidence in the delicate footwork!. P3 left my hedge shears at home, but managed to tear my way through 20m of ivy, mud, hawthorn and rock that resembles a moist wensleydale to emerge at footpath fractionally before nightfall. Weirdly quite enjoyed all this..
