Priceless >>
55m, 2 pitches. A puzzling line that maintains its interest to the end. Ascend the groove of Reveille until almost at the upper ovelap. Traverse down and right to a sapling and then climb across and up to a three peg belay. Traverse right (peg, step round the corner (crux) and back up to the overlap. Drop down onto a foot ledge (peg) and traverse right again. Belay on trees at the same height, or finish up Clarion/Sinister.

Tricky route finding to say the least probably meant I climbed the crux of every route that this passes through lol.

Led 2nd pitch, which was really good. 1st pitch seemed (and was) a bit scary. Belay is alright now with 1 new peg.

Crikey - the belay is awkward - 3 old rusty pegs clipping in with one hand and then tieing knots with your teeth - I got more pumped setting up the belay than on the rest of the route! Lots of traversing - HARD 4c climbing and a thin but short crux.
