Quite pumpy-steeper than it looks. High bolts again and a fair jag to the first one

Seemed like a Powerfull crux passing the (really hard to clip) second bolt. Harder than the route to the left

Tom had attempted the lead and got his second quickdraw in but found the crux to difficult to lead. So I decided to give it ago so I pulled the rope down and tied in. The crux was very odd and more strenuous than I was expecting unless I did it wrong. I did a questionable mantel on to the last ledge. Strangely hard and strangely enjoyable

Nice climbing and takes a little figuring out to get past the second bolt (had to clip mid crux move as bolt is too high from the ledge unless you're 6foot tall).

great fun, but poorly placed (third?) bolt, difficult to clip for the short. brilliant and bizzare crux move, feels improbable but once worked is quite straight forward.

First ever climb on slate. Felt awkward not knowing what footholds to trust.

leeds_belle 26/Aug/13 2nd β

My first slate climb. Gave up on the lead because I could clip before the crux. A bit difficult to get my head around how different the rock felt to anything else I'd climbed.

Note this route and Bosch Stop Quarry are numbered wrongly in the guide photo. As stated in UKC description Bisch Bash Bosch is the left hand line. The lower off is placed so the rope runs over a sharp edge. Better for at least the last one down to use the Bosch Stop lower off.
