22m. Start just right of the crack of Caveman and boldly climb the gnarled slab to the ramp and runners. Continue in the same line across the crack of Lunar Landscape, and make thin, bold moves to gain horizontal cracks. Continue more easily, but on increasingly vegetated graound, to saplings.

The guidebook doesn't say it's bold... There's no gear until the ramp! I was glad to have the mat. Probably not the best choice for a warm up on damp slimy rock. The runnel above the ledge was horrible, wet grass in everything.

With the Caveman start, and gear in situ.

Start is hard VS, after some gear is in its ok. Not sure if I was on route for the top half, the line is not too obvious. Fun nevertheless.

Actually did the first part of Caveman up the crack by accident. Attempted to lead but didn't get to the first ledge so Hannah lead it. Cloudy and started to drizzle a little bit.

The Ivanator 14/Aug/11 Lead O/S

Crux sequence moving up from the lunar landscape fault (through blankish section just below and right of the little sapling at two thirds height) is tricky and run out (I placed a side runner in what I think is the upper crack of Caveman, but was still facing a sizable pendulum slither) nearly came off when I committed to a move to an unexpectedly poor crimp. The hardest VS I've done at Fairy Cave, quite a bold start too. Addendum (in light of new guide) Turns out I did the start of JP and the upper section of Glacial Point (reckon the line I climbed was around E1 5b, I'm calling it the Jiggery Point variant). Worthwhile.

To check the line and measure the route. The logical line is to leave good holds and make a tricky 5a sequence diagonally left then up to the ledge. Top end VS 5a.

New description needed. Bold at start, and hard and bold leftwards crux to reach runnel.
