The Gap – Confidence Sector

A fine area with a variety of excellent, easier sports routes via a series of pillars, walls and well-grouted roofs.

1. Canine League (6b) * first line through roof right of corner. Good climbing with a pumpy roof.

2. Sleeping Dogs (6b+) ** a superb route via the juggy handrail and the right-hand side of the roof. Classic.

3. Don't Bark Yet (6c) New line finishing via overlap

4. Smack yer bitch up (6b+) side wall of corner and face above.

5. Generation Gap E1 5b very pleasant climbing in traditional mode starting up the left edge of the pillar.

6. Mister Faraday (6b) * a good introduction to the cliff. A short stubborn start with fine climbing above.

7. A Poker in the Eye (6b) ** fine route, strenuous at the grade. Take the roof and storm the walls above.

8. Grout Expectations (6a) * pleasant easier line to the right.

9. Shackles of Love (6b) crack, wall and shallow groove to the right. Not outstanding.

10. Ring of Confidence (6b) * low-level flakes and wall on right to the top. Hollow high up but worthwhile.

11. Get Flossed (7a+) * squeezed in but quite a tough cookie if climbed direct. Avoid good holds on left at grade.
