Wonderful and frustrating slab climb. It has sadly been chipped recently. Still a great problem and still 6b if you don't use the chipped bit.

Sent old style with a good spotting and no pads! 5+ seems about right if keeping left on the slab (a long reach helps to grab to good slopper on the top). If keeping on the right, look for the 'direct' which is worth a good 6a+!

6a+ in the guidebook and it definitely is!

Finally bagged it with a night-time ascent, and with different beta to before. Started just right of the bottom crack, and didn't use the 'jug' to the right. I'd give it 6b, but the voting panel won't let me.

Absolutely nails - how the hell is this 5+??!! Spent about 3.5hours on this, managed to get one move from the top - and that was using the chip! Took out my frustration on a climb opposite - La Lune (6c+) - which went on the third attempt. The crazy world of Font grading.

Didn't realise there were rules about this, still felt ridiculously hard for 5+ even with the mono

2nd go. With the chip and finishing the left way. Didn't realise the history of the problem/chip or I'd have tried the eliminate.

Slipped off top hold, was ok 2nd attempt ^^

Jamie Light 03/May/07 Sent x

In the 'Grade 6 and above' book as a Font 6b, probably goes at around 5c-6a though, height dependent.

Yes Matt, you should work on your footwork! Quite easy now, there are a couple of small chips on the key foot holds.
