Rockfax Description
Although only a linking section of climbing it provides a surprisingly good and quite long section of independent moves. From the second bolt on Reptile Smile, climb up and right to join Slings Shot. © Rockfax

I went all the way to the last bolt independent of slings shot (level with the last steep move on that and traversed in right) I'd say this way was harder than many of the F6as I've done.

Climbed in error, meant to do Reptile Smile. Although this appears now to be a fully bolted independent route rather than a link-up?

High first bolt, but on fairly easy moves, then onto the flowstone to join the line of slings shot which is great fun.

Had problem at the next to last bolt on the slingshot bit that I'd cruised before - tired I guess? First bit was really nice though, long way to the first staple - how cool was I?
