[Crispo on Double Agent, 3 kb]The blank, mottled wall is taken centrally by this exquisite little climb. Start 4m left of the corner. 12m. Move up slightly right to the middle of the wall, step right and then climb direct to a final fingery pull. © ROCKFAX
Start as for potential energy, traverse right at the horizontal break then up the crimpy technical to the lower off. Can be done by starting up Agent Provcoateur giveing a straighter route with no change to the grade.

got it second go. disappointed not to flash this, got to the very top first go, couldn't find the last few holds to get me to the top of the crag and clip the loweroff! got pumped and came off. there are two very thin crimps that allow for a high foot and slap for the top. packs in alot of good climbing and moves for such a short route.

Great route, haven't really climbed outdoors much before so spent a long time on the route looking for holds but managed to get it in the end (after clipping the chains off the tiny crimps rather than the huge jug ;) )
Tiny climb - Lead O/S - 15/May/11

Warmed-up on Feline, and by doing this route in a few sections. Had to work and warmup on the final wall. Led clean Second attempt.

O/S attempt, felt very thin and sustained, got past 3rd bolt but messed the thin layback crimp bit. Top moves seemed way hard too! Probably ok worked but seemed very sequency to onsight.
Justin T - Lead dog - 10/Oct/10

First hard route after returning from injury. Pleased. This gets 7a+ in the new South West Climbs guide but more like solid 7a

mike hooper - TR dnf - 12/May/10 with rich pollard, robin frazer
