Take an easy line up the wall on the far side of the bay. The route is well protected and has some fine positions.

the start is quite tricky for a VDiff - unless we missed something obvious - but has and easy finish

DO NOT CLIMB

Upper section now heavily affected by rockfall following fatal accident

The above warning is out of date. An OK climb in a fine position, no significant loose rock, and loads of pro.

Didn't manage to find where this route went. I'm sure it can't be that hard, but we were in a bit of a rush (had just fancied a nice easy VD to warm down) so in the end I backed off and abbed for gear (on a VDiff, how embarassing!) Certainly didn't find any part of the initial face that was well protected!!

I think i just about got the right line but like Cider Nut i found this incredibly unprotected for a VDiff! i got 2 x No. 1 nuts, a friend 1 and a Swedge (!!!!!!!!) in about 40 feet or so of climbing! Suffice to say that large hexes and nuts (which you might reasonably expect on a VDiff) were redundant...

Rock is pretty solid and pleasant - just climb anywhere at VD/S/HS as the mood takes you

Couldn't really work out exactly where this route went, but followed direct line up the east side of the ampitheatre (left end of wall to the west of pulpit route. Very easy and pleasant, but very sparse protection !!!!!!!!!
