The best lower-grade route in the quarry - sadly it is not THAT good. Climb the wide crack to ledges then the groove and arete on the left to the unstable summit rubble-field. Helmets advised!


If you manage to create some intense rope drag, the finish is about E3.

A horrible climb when wet - lots of loose grit to shower your belayer with

Overall, a nasty route. Quite tricky at the bottom, easy at the top, loads of rope drag, plenty of potential to drop loads of stones on people. Wouldn't reccomend it to anyone.

A good route to introduce your new seconder to millstone, (watch for rope drag) Tip for belayer, LOOK OUT!

Makes an excellent warm up solo, even the little lady managed to pop her solo cherry up Brixton Road

Too much loose rock at the top. Take great care if soloing!
