18m. Improbable and well protected climbing that finds an accessible path through an intimidating neighbourhood. Climb the easy wide, white groove past a couple of old pegs to a small foot-ledge (bolt above). Step across to the left and move up with difficulty past a bolt runner to a resting place under the jagged overhang (8mm bolt and handy wire placement). Follow the series of blocks steeply up leftwards past a bolt runner to reach good handholds and a peg (with in-situ sling). With added protection from wires and cams continue much more easily up into the scoop above to reach a deep slot and finish with a hard reach past a bolt runner to a replacement double ring abseil station. Re-cleaned and re-equipped 2012. An extra bolt added just below the abseil station.

given the number of bolts this is really a sport route, although I did place 1 cam just to look willing! Good climbing with some pleasing tricky bits.

The bottom bit is really good. The LO is in a bit of a funny place though. It should either be higher or lower.

Very scary pulling through the large, detached blocks!
Garrouli - Lead O/S - 19/Jun/13 with Ioanna

Mostly a clip-up now. Very sustained and very good as long as the blocks stay in.

Nice climb worth a repeat, went the right way this time :P not quite sure if this is still supposed to be trad or not with all the bolts it has... there's still one runner and a bit of tat you have to use. A soft 6c possibly

F6c?

i did it... but struggled and didn't read it very well and went right instead of left at the top (wrong way) but still possible. Managed to dislodge a few big chunks of rock i was standing on.
