Wall on slopers sit start >>
[The Savile Feeling (FA), 3 kb]10m. Direct finish to suspension flake with elegant and precise moves. Do the crux of suspension flake and make very reachy moves using the arête and a small crimp to allow for a precarious move to the final sloper, (crux) with a mantelshelf to top out.

Slightly overgraded? E1 5a, maybe 5b if your short. I didnt find it nessecary to use the arete. Not really a route, just a harder finish to SF.

Really didn't think I was going to be able to do this, although I had done it clean multiple times on a toprope several weeks beforehand the first couple of tries on the day I just couldn't stick the precarious crux move. After some practice Rob then led it and gave me a massive inspiration boost. Tried again on the toprope with some slightly different beta and then managed to link it clean 4 times in a row, so with fading light and a lot of pressure I decided that I just had to go for it. So relieved sticking the crux hold as I really didn't fancy an evening in casualty and the pressure of having to come back and do the route again in the future. Definitely the most testing trad route I have done to date.

The quest is over! After putting it off on several trips to dartmoor we finally did it. Very pleased indeed. It is just a variation, but a brilliant and engaging one none the less! Thanks to James for mental coaching and first class belaying ;)
