|Brompton's Cocktail||E5 6b|
|58m, 2 pitches. An interesting addition which, despite its eliminate nature, deserves more attention than it receives. Pitch 2 makes a good but hard variant on Lyme Cryme.|
1) 6b, 25m. Start up the groove left of Robert Brown. From the peg, trend left (bold) to the break. Make a sustained sequence over the bulge and left to join Lyme Cryme; delicate and perfectly protected. Belay as for Lyme Cryme.
2) 6b, 33m. Follow Brown Donkeys (page 350 ) to the bong then continue to the twin bolts above and right (good small cam up and left of the left-hand bolt as back up). Desperate moves upwards (avoiding the easier detour up the flake on the right) enable you to reach the roof (peg). Finish more easily above. © ROCKFAX
