45m. A truly fantastic pitch. Sustained, well protected and with a pressing crux move high on the wall. Start below the very thin line of cracks in a slight depression on the upper wall and just right of the rope sling at the midway break on Mother Africa.Move up the wall on good holds to a narrow ledge. Harder climbing past white blotches gains the horizontal break above. Sustained climbing through the bulge and up the line of thin cracks leads past a jug, but without much respite, to another bulge. A hard couple of moves up and right past a peg gain a thread and the final short wall. © ROCKFAX

piken - Jul/14

Awesome route. Sustained - no real hard moves - and stonking gear if you can hang on to place it.

Psyched! Amazing route. Fell off on onsight a month ago, got back on it today and bosh! Pretty pumped from the start but you can just about keep it together. Replaced the old tat on the peg as I abseiled past, so ground up and abseil inspection.
Tom Livingstone - Lead rpt - 01/Aug/13 with Dan Lane

great climbing but a little too steep for me, though none of the individual moves felt too hard.
Dan Lane - 2nd dog - 01/Aug/13 with Tom Livingstone

An awesome route, so steep but so many jugs! Quite greasy conditions and still slightly pumped from earlier. Fell just below crux. Will be back!
Tom Livingstone - Lead dog - 22/Jun/13 with Jake Lloyd

Combination of grease and unfitness made this seem desperate. Newfound respect for my old fitter self.

First E5! Sooo pumped. Slapped my way up it, placed twenty runners somehow. Not hard, some good jug shake-outs that I should have been able to recover on, but i'm too unfit. I was off from the crux, but fell sideways and hung the jug as I went! Thanks to Naomi and Jordan for chalking it up perfectly.

First E5 @ Swanage. Managed to keep to pump at bay - felt a lot easier than Lean Machine.

Swapped leads last minute with mikey. Good moves between the jugs. Not sure about the mesmeric crux but i used a high heel so maybe i teched past it.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 11/Aug/10 with Mikey G

on alex's gear. Brilliant climbing, low in the grade e5 - some quite hard moves but enough good holds to recover in between them
Mike Goldthorp - Lead β - 11/Aug/10 with alex mason

Not sure if it is the best single pitch at Swanage, thought Lean Machine was better.
Ally Baba - Lead O/S - 08/Jul/10 with Tony Stone, Mcgeek

mgeek - Lead β - 08/Jul/10 with ally swinton, Tony Stone

fell off the start a couple of years before
dan gibson - Lead RP - 13/Apr/10 with jacquie robinson

Robbed of the onsight when a jug came off in my hand at 30feet. Pulled ropes and flashed it. Mega line - not as thin as it looks from below.
