25m. The slab to the left of Strictly Ballroom provides some good and surprisingly independent climbing on excellent rock. From the sapling up and left of the lowest point of the slab, climb a direct line left of the blast pocket to a poor spike runner on the left. Take a direct line up the slab passing a couple of microwire placements until balancy moves gain two good fissures which take good wires. Thin moves up and right lead to the base of the finishing groove of Strictly Ballroom, which is followed to the top.

Lost balance due to much joking around with people on the floor and must admit to grabbing a wire if only for half a second to stop the barn-door...

Fairly thin and balancy. Needs small nuts, of which I didn't have quite enough, making the top section quite run out. Nice moves to gain the shallow groove and sidepull rail to finish. Felt quite bold.

Seemed a lot easier than last time. Still not sure I'd lead it at this stage.

Rope set of from another lead so gave it a go. Had great fun on balancy moves with careful footwork. Well above my leading ability!

Rather squeezed between two other climbs. Nice slab though.
