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 right hand of the two 6a+ then this is a great little route, testing, with a very tentative crux move which I enjoyed, having to really trust my left foot. Easy start becomes consistent, calculated moves.

JoeFoster59 24 Apr, 2016 Lead O/S 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
