Description [Suggest Change]

One of the classics of its grade in Cheddar, on a par with Get That Man. On the right wing of High Rock is a smooth grey sheet of solid rock with a couple of small overlaps at 1/2 and 3/4 height: Shakin' Like a Leaf follows the left-most line of bolts on this wall. Steady climbing to just below the first overlap is followed by a technical sequence to bypass it, then a rest. Another tricky sequence past the second overlap gains easier ground to the anchors.

The route has a conflicted history, being first climbed fully bolted then promptly chopped by locals and climbed bolt-free in 2000. It is now back to its original, bolted state. (And looks set to stay that way!)

Location [Suggest Change]

Park in High Rock car park, practically at the bottom of the route. Shakin' Like a Leaf is the first bolted line to the right of Coronation Street.

Protection [Suggest Change]

9 bolts on the route, two-bolts anchor with rings.
