An iconic route, almost a rite of passage. An inability to use your feet may actually come in useful at the start, but you'll need them to clip the belay. © Rockfax

Got v close on this (3 moves away from easy ground) but had to give up after tweaking my finger on one of the powerful pocket moves low down.

All the difficulty comes from the first steep section which to be honest is mostly shit thrutchy movement on painfully grim pockets. The top section is ok. 1 star for the history and the line, other than that its fairly wank.
