The Machine in the Ghost** E5 6b
[Slate Quarry Art or Graffiti?, 2 kb]42m. Chipped and now sports three bolts, rather than a skyhook for the 7a crux as on the first ascent! so safer nowadays. still Technical, Start to the left of the central groove, follow the thin crack to a bolt. Step right and rock over then step up to a good ledge. Moving left and up past two more bolts to a shared lower off with Scheherezade. Direct start is about 6b.

Packs it in from the word go. Relentlessly technical.
Ed morris - Lead O/S - 16/Nov/14 with James Taylor

2nd go. Also went left at the last bolt, probably not as bold as direct.
