Rockfax Description
A fun lower slabby section. Try to avoid holds on Kemp's Delight and finish around to the left - fierce. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the wall just left of centre to the overhang. Step left and climb the awkward flake crack to finish.

To the ledge, followed by a traverse and exit up the crack to the right (f5+)

Found it a breeze. Didn't pull the mantle at the top as lots of rope drag and didn't want to damage the lovely sandstone. Loved my first day at Bowles. Will be back!

Make sure you set the anchor up over Mick's arete and back it up on the bolt to the left of the tree (if facing over the edge) so that the rope doesn't swing round down the gully, top feels really sketchy otherwise.

too tired to tackle the small roof at the top, but enjoyed a bold climb to that point.
