60m, 2 pitches. On the Somerset side of the Gorge in Arete Quarry(opposite Unkonwn Buttress).On the left of the Quarry is a tall arete,the climb takes this directly.1,gain the crest of the arete and follow it for 30 metres to a sloping ledge with tree belays.2,behind the belay is a steep corner climb this until a spindly sapling is reached and then traverse left to regain crest of the arete and continue to a short wall and the top,tree belays.The climb was originally graded V Diff in the 1964 John Nixon guide,Limestone Climbs in South West England,it is probably more like Hard Severe 4b

Possibly Mike Harvey circa 1954

Damp lower down. Traversed around the tricky move at the belay up the slab to the right.

despite an epic with my stupid idea of hauling the bags! … really enjoyed this Leigh Woods classic. It is a bold climb but a brilliant alpine-esque adventure. Had a very memorable picnic at the half way belay. Wanted to do this for a while. (galaxy chocolate cookies were insane)

Possibly the best v. Diff in the Gorge. Could do with some traffic. Ranks with some of the best "expeditions" on the sunny side of the river.
