35m. Formally known as Hitman from a 1977 ascent, but now recognized that this line was climbed earlier. The start is obvious, from below the easily identifiable wedged block to the right of Assassin. Climb up left of the block, then move onto it via a hard move on small but positive foot holds. The crack slightly left is then followed steeply but with good holds and protection. Once you join the diagonal crack of Dry Riser it is very easy to go off route. The line actually crosses the steep wall immediately up and to your right. This looks hard but if you commit you will find really positive holds which quickly move you into another crack and the finish.

Ed led while we all had a snooze. Thought provoking route.

Sopping wet in places! Took a while to figure out the line at times.

Pretty straight forward. Stepping onto the jammed boulder was cool!

Warm up route before Assassin on nxt visit.Think I went 3m too far right on top section into a kool layback groove. Good route , varied climbing and gear was sound enough.

Tough. Due to the way the ropes were pulling, I got pulled off getting onto the block. Once I'd gone underneath the block, found the obvious holds that joe had missed.

Good steep moves around the block. A little dirty in the middle.

Climbed as the route Hitman (VS 4c in the Danford/Penning SWMC guide 1983). Credited to John Bullock and Gwyn Evans - FA 1977. Now understand this line claimed earlier, so have amended my written log to reflect. Hitman is a good name, although i'm sure there's a story behind the current title.
