Halfway to Kansas >>
12m. A bold eliminate just left of Halfway to Kansas. Holds and runners in the wide crack of that route are prohibited. Start a metre left of the wide crack and climb directly up the slab to reach horizontal cracks at 7 metres (the first gear). Continue in the same line for a further 5 metres to a sturdy sapling. Abseil descent.

One piece of gear in break only, could've done with some micros. Exciting!

only bothered to place one micro above the break, moves were thin and very bold, good route. Possibly E3 5b? As a fall before the gear could be quite serious.

Got quite nervous on this. Doesn't look much from the ground, but very committing.

Measured at 12m; doesn't look it , though. E2 5b.
bpmclimb - TR rpt - 06/Apr/11 with Shunt

Seemed easier. Perhaps E2 5b

First ascent, after cleaning and shunting. Particularly thin 5c crux moves to reach the first gear at 7 metres, so I thought E3 was justified. On the other hand it could be E2 5b, and I'm just being a wimp.
