climbingchica 16 May Lead O/S This is being logged as the right hand one of the two routes. First proper outdoor leading since breaking my wrist, still recovering. Thought we were doing the 5a route, ended up bailing between 2nd and 3rd bolt, once 3rd bolt was clipped by Geordie, I was able to get back on and cleanly lead it to the top, after a little assistance to get up above 2nd bolt, pretty sure that was the crux.

RockPhoenix 17 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S Seems many many people are confused by which route is which, as it seem the guide book has listed Bish Bash Bosch and Bosch Stop Quarry the wrong way around? I need to ask Ian, the FA! IF this is genuinely the left hand of the two 6a+ then I found this route a little easier than Bish Bash Bosch but still a demanding route for this grade and felt like a worthy onsight
