Rockfax Description
An interesting and well-positioned outing that wanders up the wall above and left of the orange stained cave at 8m. Start at a belay beneath the cave.
Climb up a flake-line to the cave and a thread. Move up left to a peg, and another down to the left. Make some difficult moves left and up to a thin break and then stretch left to a juggy pocket and good thread. Move onto the slab above and climb the bulge, past a peg, to another slab below the final short and steep wall, which is supplied with good holds. Fence-post belay well above. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The LH exit to the Moonshot cave. An old peg marks the exit crack leftwards, traverse out to a thread (looks old but fairly thick), from here move upwards to a rest, then up (reasonable peg) and over a bulge onto a slab to the left. Finish up through the wall above with care.

Excellent - the crux is shared with Shooting Stars but feels much easier on this route as you're fresh when you get to it.

As a clip-up on Brian's gear straight after doing Shooting Stars. The shared crux felt miles easier this time round.

Fantastic varied climbing but a little spooky with the loose-looking holds, E3 seems fair.

steady climbing, but a lot of fragile rock, hence E3 is not a bad idea to give people an idea of this IMHO. Paradoxically, the rock and gear on the only tricky bit is impeccable! A great route.

Semi epic. Arrived at crag intending to do sport stuff which was wet. Had been meaning to do this for a while and it looked dry. However we had two single ropes, no helmets and no guidebook and I couldn't quite remember where it was supposed to go. Eventually figured out the line and set out, finally topping out on the least chossy-seeming option but then one rope jammed as I was mantling on to the grass. Ended up hanging off a block untying the jammed rope (which, incidentally, had the two last pieces of gear on it) before the grass mantel. Then spent the next 45minutes cursing myself for having set off topless as I shivered on the grassy slope belaying. Good route though! Not E3 despite the new rockfax. E2 5c is probably spot on.
