Nice Photo, Dave still cranking hard then ? This route is high on my list for this winter, looks bloody hard.
Is that a bolt down on the right ?

More likely a peg Mills. Considering one on LW broke recently its probably of dubious quality.
Will Hunt - 05/Oct/09
Yes, it is a peg, but it is not reachable from LW as it is about 2 metres left (looking at the crag). It is right between LW and The Mall, possible from an old aid route? pendulum from LW to the Mall or the other way round?

Its worth pointing out that Dave did successfully complete this route!
He told me that he first tried it 20 years ago, but that attempt was promptly terminated by rain! He'd not been on it since...

Yes - Crispin Waddy and me both failed to get past the first runner in 1990, then it rained so we blamed that.

I like the attentive belayer!
