The Colostomy Finish >>
20m. The wall 3m right of the arete gives good climbing that eases with height. Exit over to the right. There are two poorer left-hand finishes: The Colostomy Finish, 7a - left towards the arete and over a small roof; and Physical Fizz, 6c+ - continue slightly higher then move left below a bolt. FA.

Too hard for me at the moment after 8 months no bolts. Did first hard move then bailed out onto Pale Rider.

A bit wandering up high but the pretty purple fluorite more than makes up for it.

Got spat out mid way trying to figure out the sequence and lobbed twice at the top. Went left at the top and found it desperate. Will be back! Hard 6c.

Not particularly continuous: the main difficulties end at the 2nd bolt. But good rock and still interesting above.

Clean this time, need to get on the lead at some point when I'm feeling brave. Still pumpy though, just need more stamina.
Reaver2k - TR rpt - 19/Feb/09 with Tom Dixon

thomasadixon - TR O/S - 16/Feb/09 with Alan

Had to rest a couple of times on this, I don't think I was really fully committed to it, the first moves are hard, once you have reached the flake things get slightly easier. Break out left to a good rest. Up the groove, then out right again, pumpy. Up and left slightly into a very slopery section. Then up and right through this. Although the holds are poor, it's all in balance. Keep going then finish on the (hard) moves of the adjacent 6a! feet high, pull on holds to reach good hold to right of belay chain.
