New easy sport routes opposite Gallery cave

11:40:07 AM
I spied a new bolted route on the juggy grey wall directly opposite Weaveworld at The Gallery. It climbs an obvious right facing wide corner (offwidth then chimney) with three bolts (one u-bolt and 2 FHs). It finishes at a double u-bolt lower-off - with mallion. The climb is about grade 16. It is actually quite a fun route - you can climb the face to the right of the corner on good incut holds. You only need to do a few easy chimney moves near the end.

Does anyone know the first ascent details?

We have a winner! [gotta love the internet!]

The Educator  15m 16
Climb obvious right facing wide corner or the face right of the corner passing 1 u-bolt and 2 fixed hangers. At the 2nd fixed hanger move right to doubly bolt lower off.
First ascent: Ben Hawthorne and Doug Williams October 2004

Two easyish routes go up the cracks to the right then up a slab, to a little overhang. You must remember though, that a precedent has been set and under no circumstances are naturally protected routes allowed on this wall.
