Climb the VERY polished jugs/ledges to the right of 'bitter and twisted' to finish at the same lower off. The top bolt has now been replaced, but one of the lower-off bolts is still slightly wobbly, so take care.

Big move at the break was too big for through on some smaller holds in the end. Moving left at the finish seemed pretty tough too. Left hand lower off bolt is a bit loose and rocks a bit in it's hole....a bit unnerving!

Would have onsighted if not for conditions. Was climbing really smoothly until I reached the crux where I found that the two crucial holds where absolutely goping wet to the point where they were simply unusable. Was there for ages trying to work out some kind of alternative sequence but I came to the conclusion pretty quickly that there wasn't one. So In the end I decided to recover the draws and call it quits. Will return for this as well as Bitter and Twisted as soon as conditions are better.

Stanners 29/Oct/11 Lead O/S

Didn't feel that bad for 6b+. Shame that top bolt is a little dubious. Definitely worth a star though despite the polish.
