10m. The tough start gains the centre of the slab and a runner slot. Mantel then stretch/leap for the top. The tall have an unfair advantage (E2 5c-ish) and the short will struggle (E5 6b). © Rockfax

scott quinn 22/May TR rpt

fell off the start onto mats (in-between the bloody gap) wasn't really feeling the start used new beta which works but never feels solid, Tom lead properly I had the cam pre clipped climbed on slack rope just so I could experience the fun up top again on lead - logged as TR as its not really a proper ascent

tom 23/Apr Lead dnf

Start was much harder than I was expecting...(need to trust my feet!) Thankfully the bottom cam held, annoyingly the bottom lip cut through the sheath in my brand new rope...

Tom fell so I went up with the cam pre-clipped the hard rock over at the bottom took a lot of working & some belay related assistance! think I figured it out wont know for sure until round two. The rest was fairly simple after the crazy rock over into the cam pocket which is awesome, and the dyno is just good old vdiff fun Like this route think I will pay it a visit every time I get to the roaches

The first rockover foot hold was broken, so smaller than some might have enjoyed in the past. The dyno is more awkward than I thought it was going to be. The angle of the slab makes it hard to sink down for the big jump. I stood in the pocket until my calves started shaking, then decided I had better go for it :) Dan soloed it shortly afterwards.

Tried o/s with high smear jump method. Bogus beta as it turns out, from the Leicester gnome. Nearly hit the ground! (Thanks, Matt!)

More like 5c I think than 6b especially when compared to Artless at Froggatt, which also has a very long reach but is much more balancy.
