DescriptionKind of a mini version of Venus on a Halfshell. Fun climbing; I just wish it kept going and was in a more accessible location.
Climb out on the juggy rail and clip your first bolt then throw your right foot up and press into a long reach for a crimpy flake (take care not to rip it off, please) Clip again and continue into a crimpy sequence that gets you to good holds where you can now move left and get a shake. Up high and left gets you to the start of a series of cool pockets angling back right that ends with a pop with bad feet to the anchor clipping jug.
Great for getting away from the crowds. Short but engaging.
LocationAbove, almost at the very top of the steep gully between Cozened Stone and Very Nice Crack, on the left wall. The very nice 'Lectra Crack (which is actually nicer than Very Nice Crack, with one bolt at its start) is just left of it. Alternatively, if you are already in the vicinity of the Asylum, walk to the very left side of that crag and you will find a goat path that will drop you into the gully half way up. Take care if you come from the Asylum, as it is a little exposed at one point and you are above the Prudential.
