[Undercracker HVS, 2 kb]Fairly bold but enjoyable climbing up the curving flakeline on the left-hand side of the bald slab left of Urizen's corner. Start below the left side of a flat pillar of rock with a very small wedged block in it at 7m. 44m. Climb up the left side of the pillar to the small wedged block and a good ledge just above. Traverse left along a break, then move up to a narrow ramp-line. Follow this up right as it steepens to form a corner, peg, and continue up the left curving overlap to join the finish of Twinkletoes. © ROCKFAX

climbed this following a swim in the sea, in my boxers, so had to take them off. So I led undercracker with no undercrackers. nice route, enjoyed it.

I think E1 5a, just enough sustained moves together to make it E1 with ok gear.

Gorgeous varied route.
manwithacam - 2nd - Oct/07 with Martin

Brilliant route, especially moving up following the flake. Never E1 though, it's HVS if quite hard in places. Toby's idea not letting Josh climb down by the way (good one though)!
thomasadixon - Lead O/S - 03/Sep/07 with Josh, Toby

And Toby. Faffed around at the start for an age, only carried on because Tom wouldn't let me downclimb back to the ground! Really nice route though. One of the blocks at the top is very loose though, so be careful!
