Gladiator*** 7b
[Gladiator, Spartacus, Kalymnos., 3 kb]After a slightly artificial start (alternatively step in from Spartacus), superb, steep blob-climbing leads to a step left in a great position. More testing moves are required before the angle eases near the lower-off. © ROCKFAX

MIssed the O/S by a silly mistake. got it on the next go. Belayed young Mike Hopkins as he on sighted it age 14.
mux - Lead RP - Oct/10

Tough one but got it done in a day. Thin start which needs dry conditions. Crux has a slightly hard to read sequence.
