Start below the arch. Move up to a rest by the second bolt (quite hard to clip). Keep going straight up to a flat jug, then swing out right to sideholds by the third bolt. Motor on through the arch to an abseil station.

Way too hard for me right now, can hardlly touch it from bolt 2, not even the easier through the roof bit!

One of my favourite roadside routes in cheddar. Got it 1st Rp which was nice as only had time for one go before having to leave. Clipping 3rd bolt was fine just hard to get there.

A good route, worth at least 2*. Second go after a pretty decent onsight attempt, lost my way a bit with the feet around bolt 3. All there, but not very visible. The second clip felt pretty tough, but there's an ok position to do it from.

Twatted myself by falling off by the 3rd bolt on the flash. Top tip, get belayer to stand well left so you miss the rope. Or read the description and use all the holds.

Put the draws in then got it first RP. Probably 2-3 goes on top rope the week before.

Good progress for first session. Did all moves and good sequence for crux.

The flat lay back to the left of the second bolt is loose. Very committing moves! Felt shakier at the second bolt than the third. The third is a bit far away but there's a good hold to the left of it. Great thuggy moves from there to the top!

Worthwile with the 3rd clip extended. Read the description in the guide and.. no thanks... I can think of more impressive ways of breaking my legs than a 15m sport route.

My first 7a+. Dogged it to put the draws in and work a sequence, then Ralph had a go on top-rope, then I top-roped it to get my sequence wired - then got it first red-point attempt. Really chuffed. Excellent technical and sequencey climbing and then that burly pull over the roof!

Wimped out the first two tries, downclimbed and lowered off. Very good climb just wish there was an extra bolt (or that the one there was a metre further left)!
