Pimp with a Limp*** 7a+
[finish line coming up, pimp with a limp 7a+  Alan Steele, 3 kb]22m. An extremely fine pitch. Tackle the blank-looking scoop and then up the steeper shallow corner to a flake. Continue to the overhang at the top and pull out right via a good layback flake before stepping back left to a lower-off. Low in the grade. © ROCKFAX
Or finish direct as for Strumpet tot he same lower-off - perhaps 7b.

Wasn't very keen on the top section after first go but warmed up to it when going up it again on tr to strip it. Maybe if we ever get back ..

1st rp - tricky crux move. Good route even though it does look dirty and rubbish

Had a really good onsight go getting 3/4 of the way, then faffed around on awful feet to work out the finish! Hotter than the sun today!

Very confusing as to where you go at the top- the bolts lead left where the climbing goes right (but of course it could just be me being an idiot!)
