Ultima Direct** 7b+
18m. Now an excellent route in its own right rather than a variation finish to Marlina by the addition of bolts on the lower wall left of Marlina start. Climb the narrow wall left of Marlina joining that route just before its big undercut and then head off up the rest of Ultima Necat.
Makes the route a little harder than the Marlina start so probably now worth its 7b+. More importantly it now opens up three lines of bolts from the deck and might just relieve a little of the crowding often experienced here.

3 or 4 TR burns, no great links but I'm sure they'll come.

20 years after doing the original it was good to do the new independent, direct version. Excellent, sustained climbing. Fell twice just before the last bolt yesterday but no problems today:)
