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.

βeta: Great route ...pass a loose rock section around feet, a third of way up, marked by cross and crucial ‘tower’ hand hold higher up prising from wall. Will blow one day.

tobydunford 16 Oct, 2017 Lead RP 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?
