<< Point Blank
|Originally climbed with some bits of drilled gear, the right-hand side of the smooth wall now gives an awesome route which has become surprisingly popular (F7c). Start at a thin crack below and right of the smooth wall (as for Hysteria). Climb the crack for 5m then move left to a ledge. Attack the desperate crack above to gain some reasonable but hard-earned protection. Move left to a thread and a rest - crucial runner in slot to back-up thread. Climb up above then make a difficult undercut traverse rightwards and move back left to two threads. Move up into some scoops (old pegs - not crucial) above then climb the wall to a wide crack which leads to Mysteries. Finish direct up the headwall which is still taxing.

Edit: The "old pegs - not crucial" are currently (summer 2012) "single shiny peg" not sure when it was put in though. Jacob.

Ground up second go. Had a bit of a moment on the flash attempt and jumped for the thread at the top of the runout! Good beta from Jacob.
