This is not the best sector in Chee Dale but it does have a few pleasant little routes and is in a delightful and secluded setting. Over the years the routes have become rather neglected.

The blank wall right of two cracks. The mid-height reach above the second bolt is a bit of a stopper.

Probably the best route on this bit of wall; connecting a series of small jugs before trending left to a lower-off.

The wall left of a thin crack is awkward. There is a peg in the first break. The final moves to the belay are tricky.

The right-hand side of the block in the corner to a crack. Very poor.

Witness This
The right hand edge of the sidewall appears too short to be worthwhile. Don't be fooled, there are plenty of moves.

As Loose As This?
Times and tastes change - as long as there are some solid bolts. Good moves, fingery pulls at mid-height provide the interest.

The line of bolts 2m left of the arete gives a desperate pitch with an unusual crux move.

The arete to the left of Community Service, and right of a long corner, is followed through some grooves and overhangs.
