[Andy Steinberg soloing Dextrose, 2 kb]A worthwhile variation on Dexter. Start as for Dexter just left of the corner that drops down from the upper approach-ledge. 21m. Climb the wall to a widening crack and follow this on excellent holds for a few metres until level with a line of weakness on the right wall. Move out right along the line of weakness and, from where it fades, reach right to a rounded shallow crack. Take the flake above leftwards to the finish of Dexter. © ROCKFAX

Went the wrong way, slapping right too early, from the jug below the undercut and fell off. Figured out which way it was meant to go (up to the undercut then right) and did it.

Fell off this several times a few years back so good to get back on it. Went very smoothly this time. Really enjoyable climbing on perfect granite. Would be three stars if you couldn't walk off it at a couple of points.

Took a reasonable sized fall going up for the undercut/sidecut, my gear popped out, good job i backed it up. Got near the top (after the long runout) and turned into a complete pussy!
