40m. P1 6b, 20m. A powerful start, leads to a jug, before, a sequence to another jug. From here move up to a final long reach, or a dynamic move off a 2 finger sidepull, gains big holds, and so, the finish. P2 6a 15m. (unrepeated?) a tricky start gains a powerul flake that leads to a big ledge, which is gaurded by a lichenous grovelly exit.

spent too long abbing down from strike to claim an on sight but a load of the gear I spotted turned out to be behind dodgy flakes.

Seconded George on this in 2010, felt a long way off leading it. Suspect rock and a very long, committing reach (or tricky 6b moves) to finish, with gear in thin flakes makes this at least hard E5 if not E6. Comparable to 'The Long Run' imo.

Phil told me about a good hold after the runout which mae me go for it even when pumped. The fall would have been 30 foot onto a wire (the only piece between me and the deck !)
