Limbo Dancer* E4 5c
[Alex on Limbo Dancer, 2 kb]A popular and very committing, but potentially crippling problem Start under the roof just left of a crack at an inconveniently situated pointed block. 9m. Nip up the wall to the roof and reach around to a hold on the lip. Pull around and proceed with caution up the rounded breaks to the top. © ROCKFAX

Above pads, but didn't use them (climbed down rather than jump off). Took a couple of tries to commit to the move to the break!

Got the move second go after tiring myself out trying to follow Mikes beta ;) Good move, but hard!
AJM - 2nd dog - 28/Nov/12 with Mike Goldthorp

Brilliant climbing in an exciting position, more like hard 6a though. Bouldered up to the crux and reversed a few times, couldnt commit, then tied on with some gear at the back of the roof and just went for it, undecided as to whether it would have caught me but was a psychological help for sure. Top route!
