The long groove system on the right-hand side of the wall is yet another excellent pitch.

Rebolted complete with new resin bolt belay. Probably worth 7a. I have also rebolted and cleaned Poison Ivy to the right to prevent the ivy encroaching onto the Red Wall. This looks brilliant with 12BRs and a resin belay. Probably 7a+.

A very good route which will improve with traffic. Quite butch and burly for Red Wall but easier than Mussel Bound and fair at 7a IMO.

The rebolted route on the adjacent wall is called Poison Ivy and is a very good 7a+ which should become a crag classic when it gets a little cleaner.

Well done Gary for all your hard work re-gearing and installing new belays on all the routes.
