[Martin Slater near the top of Misery Goat, 2 kb]25m. An impressive wall-climb that is endowed with good holds. Start below the upper end of a low, left-trending crack in the centre of the wall. 28m. Climb steeply through the lower bulge via a horizontal crack at 3m to better holds on the wall above. Continue to a left-trending crack and take the wall above it rightwards to a peg. Trend left up the easier wall to the large break of The Smile and finish up the thin finger-cracks above (as for The Smile). © ROCKFAX

Not a bad line. Start was still a bit wet. I thought the hardest move was coming out of 'The Smile' break and into the crack system, which gets 5a...

Very damp start. One of those nice fluted holds snapped off (maybe more fragile when wet?) but managed to stay on.
