Strenuous, sustained and fiercely technical! Climbs the thin crack in the buttress to the right of 'Pig Route'. Having gained the crack attempt a series of hard, blind moves to a half-height resting foothold. Step back into the crack and finish up this.

had to rest last week on this as I am a dolerite punter. REALY enjoyed getting it dispatched. Perched on the jug foothold is the coolest place ever.

Perfect conditions today. Would have led it, but ran out of time (honest!).

Felt even harder than last time - not a good omen. :(

Lovely route, but it's going to be scary on lead. Hypothetically speaking!
