Three Blind Mice** E7 6c
[Three Blind Mice, 3 kb]10m.

Rockfax Description
Fine technical climbing up the blank arching wall. Use a couple of chipped pockets on the right to climb the lower leaning wall leftwards, pass the bulge via wild mantel and finish direct. It gets popular when there is a snow drift and it can be highballed at f7A. There is even a left-hand version called Snow Blind Mice, f7B but this hasn't yet been done 'snow-less'. © ROCKFAX

Made a bit of a snow platform so with a few pads its ok, though getting onto the lip is still terrifying.

Thought I may as well give it a bash since they they threw a rope down it. Split a tip, ARD.

Tried and totally failed in the snow three years ago. The mantle is terrifying!

Couldnt do the span to the lip, frustrating as this is not even the crux, will be back without influenza maybe, oh and tons of snow.

had one go yesterday but felt knackered after working the terrace so went home. Back again today, bit less knackered, but didn't think I was going to do it as holds and skin felt crap first few goes. Got there in the end - all about cut loose and mantle off right hand for me. Good effort snow platform builders - started on the juggy pockets so got all the climbing in if not all the danger.

Ed Booth - Solo dnf - 11/Dec/10 with steve ramsden, Gus Hudgins

Above snow drift and pads. One I don't think i'll be trying when the snow goes! Really great moves.

A big drift up against the crag and many mats. Maybe Font6C+ as a snowball.
