Start a few feet right of the cage, crux 5c move to start gains the obvious sidepull pocket feature above the lip then mantel. Technical crux despatched, the route follows the obvious line up past the pegs (tat replaced Winter '08) to a hard move through the roof. Pumpy.

If you start atop the cage ... you haven't done the route! Probably E2 5b that way. E3/4 6a if you boulder out from the bottom of the gully wall to start :)

10/4/15. Did the direct start from second obvious break. A v2-3 boulder. It gets a sounded E2 this way, I don't see how it could get an E3-4 tick for this variation. Will do super direct start at the bottom of the gully next time.

Wasn't massively psyched for this but had a go anyway....pumpy but not too bad, didn't use the leg over rest at the 'flat flange' so it cant be massively needed! This is my anti-style so pretty happy.
