This one follows the remains of the once-classic Vladimir and the Beast. Start right of Strap-Up up a crack, and trend leftwards to a thread. Continue to a peg near Strap-Up, then move back right and follow the gear up the steep wall to the top. © ROCKFAX

This climb is in 16 logbooks, and on no wishlists.

E4 and not soft. The slab between the thread and peg is bold (dangerous). You can get some gear just above the thread, but then I only had one poor wire half way between that and the peg. 5b/c climbing but with ground fall potential. Then a complete change in style, safe, juggy and steep. Decent route, between 1 and 2 stars.

Nice route that needs more traffic to keep it clean.

Was called "Vladimir and the beast" before it fell down (ie. at the time we did it).

Orig started up Vladimir & the Beast (RIP) escaped into Down & Out dislodging a TV sized block with Grin runing back trying to pull me off.
