7c+/8a given by first ascentionist. Direct version of Leather Whip Mick. Start up Empire Direct and through the crux of Empire of the Sun but instead of moving left at the big hole just after the crux move slightly right and finish direct as for Leather Whip Mick. Extend the traverse bolt of Avenged with a 120cm sling to give a clip between Empire and Avenged Direct (yellow camalot c3 or duct tape to hold it into rock).

Great route, defiantly the hardest route on the wall, much harder than Leather Whip in my opinion. Took a massive runout in the middle, so was a bit scary too. The crux is so hard for me and so stretched! Big fight but went on my first redpoint attempt. Likely second ascent too, psyched Ellis Butler-Barker - Lead RP - 09/Jul/13 with Ed
