Good climbing with a fine bulge and upper crack. Don't walk by this one, it is well worth doing.

One of the best 7a's at Blacknor if not Portland. Deserves at least 2 stars. Don't walk by this one, its well worth doing.

Long reach for shorties, possibly English 6b(or a bit of a lurch) above the third bolt, Excellent route though.

A good route,easy 7a if you are tall and like pumpy routes

what can i say I like it, originally climbing in the rain which made the top slab interesting, and followed by a shorter but very talented friend who shall remain nameless, cos he got spanked, if your less than 5'8" it probably alot harder than 7a

This is a fanatstic pitch - don't walk by this one. One of the more balanced routes at the crag, it keeps you working right up to the belay.

Route to left is Chin Reaction, 6c.

If you are too short to reach the good jug, you can climb the crux out left on some horrendous little crimps.

Top route. Nice one mr.heanes. Very good, very easy to walk past but dont! steeper for portland than most 7as on good holds, but with a massive reach on the crux. Wait until the sun comes round i found it a bit damp and wet today, but did not detract from the quality of the route! thats how good it is!
