16m. Varied and absorbing. Climb the open groove to a pair of peg runners (wires down on the left and immediately above). Pull up leftwards (various gear) then step out right onto the overhang to reach a peg runner and in-situ thread just above. Climb the right-side of the prominent elongated hole past a bolt runner (and good wire above) then finish delicately, with a quicker pulse, on much smoother rock to a shared double ring abseil station.

Originally E2 5b. Re-cleaned and re-equipped, with an extra peg added in 2012. Abseil station re-located to the left.

Without preplaced gear this time. Even though I wasn't fully recovered from being sick, this felt soft for E1 5b.

Went left at hole first, re-lead it properly!

Led on Ben's gear. Lots of upper end 5a climbing, no proper 5b climbing I thought. And reasonably protected. Seemed pretty soft for E1 to me, but the preplaced gear might have helped.

Pleasantly surpising route for new quarry trad! Found it quite technical getting to the thread but only 5b.

Judging by the cobwebs a neglected route but surprisingly nice climbing and solid rock for NQ. There are some good wires and micro-wires but the rotten tat and corroded pegs and mangled bolts needs replacing. Worth E2 in current state, maybe E1 if refitted?

The easiest E2 in the gorge? More like HVS.
