28m. A good strenuous pitch, well protected too. Start up the leaning flake system then pull out left on to the wall and up to a rest. Climb the flakes round the edge of the roof then continue until forced to traverse left below the shrubbery to Zombie. © ROCKFAX

Had to sit on the rope but only to retrieve a jammed nut.

Having 2 people second you at the same time is interesting :P

Brilliant route, no easy moves but sneaky rests in between quite distinct sections. Very pumped, loads of gear.

Chris M - Lead - 06/Aug/11

At the top, I went off route towards Lime St Direct, then had to reverse a couple of metres of hard moves (5c), and at the last moment during climbing down I grabbed the top quickdraw... The top runner itself was at potentially off-route and the move to just reach was tough, so my second Lee left it and I had to return and retrieve it, belayed by Lee at the belay stance. A micro epic. Brilliant route, though!

One rest about two-thirds up. Just got too pumped working out the awkward section nearer the bottom.

Nice route and line. Good moves, although some are a little awkward. Solid at the grade.
Matt Fry - Lead O/S - 15/Sep/09 with Sam Dixon

Found it awkward and hard work, was a warm up though, so not too bothered that I fell off it.

missed finger jam on crux move a couple of times, messed about a lot with bad feet positions. once sorted hold came easily. a good one for those wanting to work on bridging technique
