Bored of the Lies*** 7b+
[The driest it has been in years...  ...but at least it's quiet., 2 kb]20m.

Rockfax Description
This product of an earlier age now appears to have an odd line, though there is a logic to it; worth doing. The lower wall is sustained to a semi-rest at a junction with Big Zipper, finish up this. The original finish traversed right and dropped down to what is now Ouijaboard. © ROCKFAX
