Approach notes

There is a sign on the approach to the north beach (the trench etc) saying no dogs.

The trench is full of pebbles after the winter storms and a lot of the problems are much shorter now with different easier grades. There is even a boulder under the dyno making it more of a jump. With sit starts you can just about do the original routes....

The starting handholds and the starting heel hook of Ache Ball have both broken off at some point (I guess during the winter storms). What's left is a much better heel hook and, maybe, better starting handholds too. May well take the grade down to 7C.

An amazing looking horizontal roof crack project exists in the Ache Ball cave. A must for any crack climbing wads.
