14m.

Rockfax Description
14m. The right-hand side of the Elegy slab is near the limit of friction. Low side runners with keep you on your toes, especially towards the top. The name is an abridged version of the original 21 words! © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Clive Coolhead Realises the Excitement of Knowing You May be the Author of Your Own Death is More Intense Than Orgasm.

Do the crux of Elergy then pad your way straight up the slab using the best smears you can find.
Graded for a gear placement on the elergy flake and as high as you can reach from the ledge on The Bulger.

Side Runner the same height as the elegy runner, fell from the last moves going up to the pebbles first try, slitley twisted ankle:-( clean second try after lowering to the lege, didn't pull ropes, 70s style accent:-) Will return to this one with a lower side runner and do it justice. Bad Andy Bad:-)

Set up a top rope to try the route, hard moves on thin smears, but wasn't really in condition today - bit damp and skrittly
