<< Jiggery Pokery
|25m. A direct start to Glacial Point. As hard as the parent route, and somewhat bolder. Only very marginal microwire protection in the first 8m - in the real world, think solo. Start 1m right of Jiggery Pokery, make hard moves to leave the ground, and climb straight up the slab above the sapling (no reaching left to holds on Jiggery Pokery) until a final hard move gains the RH end of the Caveman ramp (and some proper runners). Make a long move up left to the Lunar Landscape crack; then step left to the middle of the upper slab and climb it directly to the top, as for Glacial Point.|

This climb is in 8 logbooks, and on no wishlists.
first few moves took several attempts, then clean to the top.

Rockovers on marginal smears -- good fun to second, but a serious lead.
