To the Man in Room 34... HS 4c
[The cleft with (L to R) Fork in the Road, Hubris, and To the Man in Room 34... , 3 kb]7m. Middle Hope. About 50m before you reach Lip Slip from the bay is a cleft formed by two opposing, sharp aretes. Layback steeply up the underside of the right arete until you can bridge across to the slabby back wall of the cleft. Step across onto the slab to a pocket and flake. Pass the first small roof on its left using the thin crack above and finish direct over the second small roof on good holds.

Note: Tech grade changed to 4c June 2014.

Nix33 - 2014

Logical direct start VS 4c possibly HVS
Urgles - TR O/S - 24/Dec/13 with Mr Shunt

Climbed both direct and by laybacking the arete to start, but the arete just looked too cool not to use. Grade probably similar either way and in retrospect I probably under-graded it a little.
