Twinkletoes** VS 4c
[Silas Feaver looking back past the loose block on Twinkletoes, 1 kb]

Rockfax Description
Start at the base of the right-hand of two corners that lead up to the base of the main corner-line of Doors of Perception.
Climb the corner to an overhang and swing up right to a small left-facing corner with a very thin crack in the back. A tricky move up this gains a ledge on the right. Take a good thin crack on the right to a large flake and move up into a slim corner on its right. Follow the shallow corner and right-trending ramp-line to the top passing a detached block with care. © ROCKFAX

Looked pretty necky from the bottom for the grade, gear was spaced but good, just when you wanted it, too. Continuously interesting and even in the easier sections at the top the run out leaves it spicy. Brilliant.

Short of decent gear at the start, was a bit unnerving. Otherwise there is gear at not-too-widely spaced intervals, but it is very fiddly to find and place. I didn't find it technically too difficult though (lots of easy mantling) and there are lots of small ledges for rests and gear placement. Bring lots of small nuts. I ran out of quickdraws (12) but was running desperately short of small nuts. Don't expect to be able to put cams in the obvious slots; the flakes are very hollow.

alexjz - Lead O/S - 23/Jul/12 with Simon Kemper

I didn't think the line was 100% obvious given the inverted V is invisible from the foot of the route and you have two completely different options for the route. Took the right hand version which was good.

Flipin amazing route! Easily better than Lost Horizons, more varied and generally more interesting climbing in a more exposed setting (3 stars defo) However it did feel more like solid HVS to me or just very hard VS. A couple of 5a bits and less than decent gear for the first half of the route. Being unorganised plonkers like we are me and my dad left our guidebook at our accommodation but luckily we got some beta on finding the start of the route from two friendly guys at the top of the cliff. (You can always count on friendly climbers when you screw up)
Quarryboy - Lead O/S - 19/Aug/11 with David Bradbrook

Superb and varied route. Tricky moves to access the slab, fine powerful lay backing above into a careful and delicate walk(!) to safety.

Superb route, worthy of 3 stars. Crux was harder than anything on lost horizon. Some of the gear was a bit awkward too and not always where you wanted it.
