"it's called the Lizard King. Partly as a Jim Morrison tribute and partly to draw attention to the fact that many of the current world leaders are actually Lizards. "

Did somebody miss the winky sign off the end here?

Top effort Jacob. You've also got the first diagonal Connect 4! on the face.

Looks a great pitch as indeed the others do. What is the line of ripples below and left of the finish - they appear to have chalk on them... or am I imagining it?

That's Cow Udder - an E1, it just follows a line of chipped holds. No gear until you're very high up and covered in pigeon shit as you approach the ledge!
