UKC Logbook Description
Much better than it looks or the name suggests. Easy moves to the left of a cave lead to delicate moves on a flowstone slab and a steep awkward finale. The first acentionist couldn't think of a name, so foolishly asked a well-known bar-owner for a suggestion.

FA. Boris Girardin, Brice Käslin Oct/2006

Really cool (and tricky) moves gaining and progressing on the flowstone stab, cocked up the footwork trying to gain the overhang and had to rest. Really strenuous and alward trying to clip the lower off.

Really nice and varied especially the technical slab and juggy finish.

Really surprised by this route. Was expecting the usual sharp stuff but really enjoyed it. Great!

done with a trainer on my right foot as id stubbed my toe and pierced the end of it the day before so was too painful in my normal shoes! made the upper slab very tricky!

Why would you go up the slab when the corner is 1m to the left?

Went straight up the smooth slab and it was very delicate. Had to then traverse left to continue up the mini groove. Guide book only graded it 6a not 6a+. Definitely harder than 6a.

Nicely shady. An excellent lead with a ballsy slab finish (which you can bypass and overhang up the edge if you can reach the clip!)

najki_2000 22/Apr/12 Lead β

going directly up the slab is quite delicate and probably harder than 6a (as per guide); there is no hard reach at the lower off (Im 5'5 and didnt struggle at all) just work your feet to a bridge and use a good undercut; the best route of the bunch since its got everything - bridging, laybacking, vertical on big holds, delicate slab and short overhang

Easy enough except for the smooth (6b?) slab and the reach for the chains.

Harder than it's neighbours but with a hard delicate slab half way. Great finish on steep wall with big jugs.
