Rockfax Description
One of Chudleigh's well-worn favourites that follows the wide snaking crack left of Cow Cave. Start below a short 3m wall directly beneath the crack.
Climb the wall to a ledge and take on the wide crack and its right wall with conviction. At its top, move left to a narrower section of the crack that leads quickly to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: It's not a nest, its a large English Ivy, which bees take most of their food from in the autumn. The bees shouldn't feel threatened, but the plant is virulent, and if not controlled, will take over the rockface. It is already spreading on the route, no doubt assisted by the lack of traffic this summer. Is gardening allowed?

βeta: Looks more like a wasp nest than a bees nest. Finish right and belay off the tree and they leave you alone.

βeta: Bee nest at the top on the left, but looks like everyone is finishing to the right to easily avoid it.

βeta: Large active bees nest on the last few meters. Easy to step to the right for a alternative fuel finish.
