The name refers to the many years between the first ascents of the 1st and 2nd pitches. Start as for The Savage at the end of the abseil.
P1: (25m) Vaguely folow the arete to a junction with Pergyl (where this route moves out right beneath a roof). Climb straight through the overhang near the arete until a few big moves gain the slab above. Belay on this.
P2: (15m) Step left one metre and climb the slim, bottomless groove, hard at first, then meander up to the crack of The Savage Direct Finish.

Led P1. Chronic flash pump on the final moves to gain the slab. Still pumped now.

Led P2, clean. P1 is a 'three move wonder' really, easy for the tall - I managed to do the crux moves fine. Just had to sit on the rope to take out a really awkward bomber runner!
