The Ivanator 21 Jun, 2015 Lead rpt Rob pulled off a big flake following me up this and took a fall. Think my belaying injuries were worse though - had a decent amount of rope in the belay (back to a substantial tree) and the stretch whipped me off my feet, cuts to elbow and knee as I hit the deck - caught the fall fine though. A good route, but a timely reminder of the unpredictability of Cheddar limestone.

Jonathan Storey 22 Apr, 2015 Lead O/S nervous start (first lead of the year) then settled into a nice corner climb. Managed to leave a cam and quick-draw behind grrr due to pending darkness and turned into a mini epic as the trek up and out was by moon light through the trees and bracken. great first out door mission bold at times for James' first multipitch.

Laura Parker 29 May, 2012 Lead O/S Lush climb after work in warm sunshine. Great starting moves and the rest was a joy - great foot and hand holds. Well done to Babybear and as for Papabear - I love you! :-)

Alex Parker 29 May, 2012 TR went up last, behind babybear, after mamabear lead. very exposed start and an awesome climb! comforting holds for hands and feet during a climb that leaves you feeling very open! the first pitch of eden crack to get there is disappointing, even for a mod.
