Dan's Dance E1 5b
32m. Eliminate in its lower half, but a good, long route nonetheless. Start as for Strictly Ballroom. Step up right and climb the slab above the small tree, passing a metre right of the blast pocket, to the left edge of a niche. Move up and follow right-rising diagonal cracks to a good square-cut hold. Stand up in this and climb straight up to pass just right of a sapling. Continue direct to pass just left of the foot of a grassy rake; then trend rightwards to reach and follow a thin flake (crux). Finish straight up to a lower-off, or, if this is not in situ, scramble up grassy slopes to saplings.

Lots of the gear slots clogged with mud.

Fun slab. Thin and balancy, but protected

Some nice moves on this, driest bit of the Glacis whilst we were on it, but that didn't last as the rain set in. Better gear than Strictly Ballroom.

Put glued snaplink on lower-off. Will do for now.
bpmclimb - TR rpt - 31/Jan/12 with Shunt

Installed twin sapling lower-off, but still needs crab or ring.

First ascent. Nice rockover move in the first few metres, and an interesting crux high on the route. Hope the flake survives.
