DescriptionA classy route up the technical wall just to the right of a band of overhangs. The initial wall (first 4 bolts) is easy and feels a bit snappy in places, but this is forgotten as soon as you launch into the crux sequence passing the overlap. Tough moves on crimps and sidepulls lead up and slightly leftwards to a rest just below a small groove. All that remains is more technical wall climbing, easier but still droppable, up and left to the chains.
This route was one of the early sport routes in Cheddar. The current guide describes it as "controversially paving the way for sport routes in the Gorge" though I don't know the history behind that statement.
