20m. The steep right-hand side of the face leads to a technical finish on friendly finger fossils. Not in current guidebook.

Same comment as for Crinoid Smile!

In spite of the dusty first half - which does have good holds - this is a better route than the previous comment suggests.

a great route - the dust is cleaning up or easily cleaned whilst leading. The top wall of fossils is excellent and unusual - it more than makes up for the dust at the start. This route can only improve with more traffic.

Distinctly dusty to start but the underlying rock feels quite pleasant to climb on. Quite a nice route - the finish is a lot easier than it looks and seems to have a couple of chipped holds. I missed a useful crimp and it was still easy F6b+ that way, might be stiff F6b if you spot all the holds.

Easy Fr6c.

6b at most. Great climb though!

The crack line just left (and using the same lower bolts) is also very good with a tough fingery upper wall - The Giggle Loop 6c

Didn't feel dusty at the weekend, thoroughly enjoyable especially the top few moves.
