Penelope Won't Leave the Pitstop** E5 6b
Fantastic slab climbing of a similar quality to Cryptyphon. Start just to the left of Corinth and climb the very shallow corner to the thin overlap and gear. Step left over the overlap into the shallow hole, the pit stop. Make tricky moves up then right to the sanctuary of the peg (removed). Up right to the obvious slot and more tricky moves up to the thin crack directly above. Final tricky moves lead to the jug in the crack which is followed to the arete and a much easier and looser finish up this. Originally done with three pegs which Lee has now removed from this route to save the placements for future ascents(SB). Now led with only the lower peg at the same grade.

A good route. Shame that a silly foot slip while stood resting blew the onsight.
