20m. The left wall of Bertie's Bugbear is fiercely technical, especially the shallow groove in the centre of the face. From the foot of the groove trend left.

There are a very high ratio of E4 6c routes in the Chew valley compared to other areas. This route has a very hard 6c crux and isn't a path above that. Not your typical E4 lead. Unfortunately dirty as well.

i thought the crux was amazin, there is an easyish and hard way to do the crux, the hard way is fingery and the easy way relies on a high right foot and pushing into the groove with the left hand, feels ok really, E56c, and one of the best
