Plastic Nerve** E2 5c
[Plastic Nerve - final moves, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
A tricky route with some fine climbing. Start on the ledge reached by abseiling down the centre of the crag, as for Stromboli. Move left across the slab to reach a thin crack below the groove formed by the end of the roof. Head up this to the groove and make a desperate sequence up to the roof (hard for the short). Sustained laybacking around this leads to an off-width through a second roof and the top just above. © ROCKFAX

On of the best done to date at Tremadoc. Got wrong-footed and took semi slip on crux but held on on jammed finger, just to have another go with feet the other way round. Reachy and hard at 5c.
