35m. Start up Marble Staircase but carry on right to termination of overhung groove. Continue up the groove then go right to mantel onto a ledge. From the left hand end, climb up to the niche on Steel Band, follow this around its bulge to the break. Get into a standing position then climb the wall above past another break to glory... a bit bold.

My vagina... It was quivering!! Battled up the initial overhung groove then found what turned out to be good gear, but I had pump paranoia. Went over to the ledge but couldn't see any gear coming up after and didn't want to commit to a mantel I couldn't reverse. In hindsight, I should be able to climb most steady 6a sequences after a rest but I was bricking it so backed off. On abb Bubbles found some gear a few moves above the ledge. Gutted.
