Gain a ledge from the left, then follow a line of layaways until a traverse left leads to a shakeout. Blast through the steep section above on undercuts to reach some good holds and a final tricky move.

Ticklists: 20 Routes For 2017.

A very quick ascent, partner arrived 30 minutes before sunset i thought all was lost. Alas the light from the Costa coffee car park and winds from storm Ophelia helped me grasp that final little crimp - great final route of the post work climbing season 2017. Huge credit goes out to Dave for his boundless light optimism. Loving the joint send! Really excellent climbing in a great position - the Lion surely is Cheddars' best climbing?

The main man Toby says it all in his send notes. Great climb, keeps going till the final hold. Awesome to get a post work team send in before the season comes to a close!

First time working it. Had 3 goes, did all the moves apart from the crux.

james n 26/Aug TR dog

Managed to climb it in two overlapping halves on toprope. It will go but will take a couple more sessions

james n 20/Aug TR dog

Worked all the moves on a toprope, all doable. The moves through the undercuts felt draining. Keen to get back on it when fresh.

John_Beesley 19/Aug Lead dog

Such a great line. Dropped last move to small crimp before chain on 2nd go! Gutted!

W d c 19/Aug Lead dog

Fell off move into corner at start . Pulled up climbed to left hand side pull, worked next moves into undercut three attempts. Worked moves across on undercuts three attempts. Worked moves from left hand undercut to top three attempts.

Climbed to undercuts unable to clip. Grabbed clip and worked undercut moves six attempts.

Climbed to blocky holds above undercuts, too pumped to clip. Climbed from undercuts to top, twice.

Should have onsight it. 2 attempt, feel very soft.

with Paul

Surprisingly good. Took a lot longer than it should of as once I'd worked it out none of the moves seemed that hard. Getting the small crimp with the right hand is the key to getting through the bulge.

Undercut sequence will work in the end!

eddieclimb 09/Aug/14 Lead RP

Finally ;-), it's safe to say I've never had to spend 5 sessions on a 7b+!!! Let's just keep it short and say this is easily 7c and not even close to the lower grade. Some really good moves, shame about the desperate small crimp in the middle... loved the moves on the upper wall! pleased to finally get this one :)

Fell on undercuts in bulge on the onsight, not surprised cos that move is desperate - BIG lock off the undercut! Dogged to the top to clock sequence n got it next go, chuffed!

Paul Robertson 21/Jul/10 Lead dog

Worked all the moves. One RP go - got as far as the two big undercuts.

Luke d 21/Mar/10 Lead dog

found this not to hard but rather frustraing also a bit easy for the grade i think 7b
