[Night Glue, 3 kb]A route which has become one of the classics of LPT. Superb and juggy at the bottom and technical at the top, with a no-hands rest in between. © ROCKFAX
Make elegant moves over the first bulge to reach a resting place below an overlap. Pull over and follow a line of jugs rightwards across the bulge to reach a handrail. Get stood up and step back left, then climb straight up to jugs. Finish with a sequence of superb rock-overs.

Dan724 - Lead RP - 28/Jul/14 with James Williams

Not, as it turns out, a warm-up onsight. Quite a thin move high up.
Justin T - Lead RP - 25/Jul/14 with Russ

Completed on 3rd visit and found it suprisingly ok as had previously worked out moves

Good rests the whole way through the lower section. Painfully sharp hold on the upper crux took me ages to commit to using it.

Bugger. Flashed to the crimp and mono then couldn't do the move because of my finger injury. I'll be back.
Adam Booth - Lead dnf - 06/Jun/14 with Ed Booth

The route was in awful condition, got way too pumped trying to do the first bit with wet hands. That's my excuse at least!

Ian Broome - Lead RP - 15/Mar/14 with Mike

The cornflake was wet! And I was pretty drained after 4 or so attempts to initiate the crux in a way that I've never done so before - trust your instincts!

Had a complete mental aberration crossing the overlap on first rp and went for completely the wrong hold, weird. Came down for 2-3 mins then got back on and did it. Good route, cool crag.
