26m. Start as for Solstice and just after halfway from the curved flake line a thin groove leads directly to the top.

Lovely climbing, nice and harrowing in the upper section with some delightful 'slow me down' gear. Probably hard 5b/soft 5c, and far more fun than Solstice.

Seconded with Ben a while ago. Great finishing moves, not hard but a few snappy/ hollow gear placements which you wouldn't want to test!

In no way is this 5c not even hard 5b!
Andy Peak 1 - Lead - 10/Apr/13 with Will

Freezing cold, literatly. Hot aches in toes and hands. Slipped at the bottom before the 5c bit.
