Mats are very useful as landings are often on big boulders.

Approach notes

Park carefully in village and do not block resident's gates. If necessary, use carpark of pub up the road.

There is a loose bolt at the first sport wall as you come down the approach. It is high up on the arĂȘte. I've chalked round it. If it's loose when I go next I'll tighten it. Be weary and check yourself before yourself.

Great haunt! I'm biased cos' I'm always going down there - no boulder buddies in a Trad kingdom!! Top five problems anyone? 1. The Pendulum and Pain , Font 7a+**. (The Pit Boulder.) 2. The True Prow, Font 7a****. (Sea Pig.) 3. Shake Your Booty, Sit Down start, Font 7a**. (Sports wall) 4. Slap and Tickle, Harder variant, Font 6c****. (The Brocolli Garden) 5. Cross Over, Brit Tech 6a** (Warm-Up Wall) P.S. Those hawk-eyed individuals will notice that the 'crimp of the devil' on the sports wall has snapped off! Crimp of the Devil has now become even harder, bugger!
