βeta: not quite sure if i went the right way but good climbing in between the bushes, the advice of bringing some clippers would have been a good idea!

βeta: Nice unpolished climbing but the price is a little gardening on the way. The belay ledge and 5m lead up to it ate still very dirt from bridge works. Which may have also fill in or removed the nut slots from the belay. Pegs not the best untrustworthy cam but you can tie off the new steel rock stability bar to right. Tree at top now gone but (60m)abseil point available but to far back as the ropes wouldn\'t pull. Needs extending. But fun route all in, needs some more traffic. Standard Avon fair without polish!
