UKC Logbook Description
So called because we were told about it at the 'last minute' before going to the printers - the correct name is 'Kom Ombo'. Unfortunately the information given to us was slightly out since the route is longer than stated in the guidebook at more like 36m.

bit wary of the flake, sounded very hollow, think it'll fall down one day! Lovely moves low down and an exciting finish. Ran out of quickdraws even though I took 14!

Fell off just before the sloper/buldge section under the flake - was resting with a thumb and the hold snapped off! Almost got killed following the rockfax guide as route is over 10m longer than stated so had to bail just after the flake; other than that was an awesome route.

Very fun climbing but it's scary if you go right after the flake before traversing back left to avoid 7b+ crux. I imagine it's scary doing the 7b+ version too.

Very cruxy 7b+ direct off of flake. And close to 40m long.

Great route, Rockfax topo will get you killed! 70m rope required 15 draws!

Went the 7a way from flake. Route is much longer than in guidebook.

Nice technical lower wall. Went indirect to right at flake ( bold but very we'll chalked) as direct didn't look like good warm up.

Nearly fucking died thinking it was only 25m as the guide suggests! Luckily a kind pole tied a knot in our rope..

ran out of draws so had to dog up it. shame as a pretty good route if you ignore the nails crux. someone suggested that the line past the flake may actually be a new route and 'last minute' be to the left. dunno.

This is actually a climb called Kom Ombo which is 36 metres long and nearer to 7b if done direct. Exposed 6c+ if following the group. There is no lower off at 24 metres. Make sure you have a long enough rope to lower off.

Had to TR due to complications... went up the 8a+ by mistake and needed to retreive the draws with complicated ropework!

Was so good the first time I did it again! Not sustained really, crimpy crux at the bottom. A tad soft.

Not 24m, nearly 44m. A big pitch ranit out missing 2 bolts, and then threading the lower-off with my arm around the chain, exhilerating. Crux involves some really thin moves off a small ledge unless 5' 11"+.

with Matilda
JPGR 23/Mar/10 Lead

Is not 24m long (nearer 38m) and def not 7a if done direct.
