From the boulder below the overhang, swing your feet into the break (honest) then shuffle round to the front face. A couple of moves of proper climbing are needed to reach the top.

Farcical indeed? A fine outing and far more enjoyable than all those polished popular end offerings of similar grades!!

Plain silly.

Although there's no way you can prepare for the scuttle into the slot at the climbing wall.

Its a lot easier to get established on the ledge if you are strong and quick enough to grab the higher flake with your right arm before swinging your leg up! If you are short, the best way now is to go for the undercut - this helps the crawling no end!

If you haven't passed your 25m badge, then walk past this one

Great fun and well protected. Strangely it all makes sense once you are inserted into the slot. The finishing move up the wall above is quite interesting too, so at least you feel like you've done some "proper" climbing and earnt the HVS tick.

Just about the most fun I've ever had climbing.

Mad as f*ck!

Totally agree with everyone... Just good silly fun. No idea how you'd grade it, but leaving it at this grade means that no one will jump on it before they're at a level at which they will enjoy it.
