Al old E5, retro-bolted in 2008 for a competition.
Climb a shallow groove over a bulge to good flakes. Move up to ledges below a roof. Pull through into a groove and bridge to good finishing flakes.

Nice moves into the groove. 3rd go after working out what to do at the top

Deserves more than a star in the guide. Hard to read, interesting route.

Got it today as warm up, putting draws in. Actually v enjoyable and stable climbing once I used the right shoe. My most attempts on any Cheddar route (been having one or two goes for years!)

Annual try at this route,went easily today. Tenuous getting into and out of the groove. A good route

First attempt on top rope did all moves. Lead to the two side pulls through the roof but falling to latch the jug.

A bit of a send train going on at High Rock - jumped aboard and ticked a third route of the evening! Fun moves through the roof - I thought getting back left into the groove was the crux (possibly because I dropped it there second go).

good line- maclures antics make i laugh! i thought his stamina would be a bit better than needing a rest on a poxy 7a. i on the other hand fell off, twice.and thinking about it, didn't even get to the top. some nice moves though- can reach the jug out right direct from the incut hold on the lip with high enough feet.

Fully bolted now. Done as part of the Cheddar Man Marathon. There's a rest of sorts with both feet in contact with the lip; I chose to be the right way up while taking it.

Managed to bypass the swing out right onto what should be a foothold. Failed to stick the last hard move.
