Rockfax Description
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

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).
