Excellent groove system at the RH end of the top tier. Second thread is weak, back it up.

Ticklists: West Country Climbs, Cheddar Intermediate.

I thought solid E1 (certainly compared to avon) A bit overgrown too. Shame the anchor bolts are low down. Looks like the last couple of meters would be quite pleasant.

Ran out of quickdraws about half way up so turned it into a two pitch climb.

Regarding the grade its E0 5a in my opinion. Fantastic positions and well protected a Cheddar classic. Its also the only obvious weakness in an otherwise blank overhanging section of rock which makes it quite aesthetic.

Not the best start to trying to climb my first E1. Ripped a hold at first thread height and lowered down to start again. More like a top end HVS 5a to be honest. Fantastic fun! Shame about vegetation in crack at the top.

With the gear already in (and a sneaky quickdraw-aided retreat to the ledge halfway up after groping a plant instead of a hold). Hardly my usual level of dogging, though.

Excellent steady route. Both threads look weak but you dont need to use them as good wires protect all the hard moves
