Rockfax Description
The steep corner with bolts on its right wall is more difficult than it first appears. Finish up the short wall above. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
On the New Cuttings cliff, the trad corner to the right of Tipping the Scales has now been retroed. A lot of loose stuff has been cleared but take care with the flowstone flake in the corner. May be F4+.

This was my first time clipping draws into a wall, so properly leading, and it was a night climb! FUN! Start is actually a little tricky but with beta was perfectly fine. very easy top section.
