25m. After an easy start up the slab at its highest point this line breaches the centre of the sweeping bulge. Tenuous moves on undercuts lead right to a powerful crux off small edges reaching to a handrail. Continue following the cool line of cobbles above.

Moves come together thanks to Daves beta, conditions sub optimal today

Found the boulder crux quite hard, not sure if the big plate jug on the left was in so missed it out and got a sequence going through the crux involving some high tenuous heel hooks. Found the link from the jug to the top straightforward and just need to dial the boulder section.

some progress - top wall sorted, and worked out best place to make the grim clip from. Red point time next unless I dont get back this season with the cold coming

moves all done - hard section in 2 sections
peter.clarkson1 - TR dog - 02/Sep/12 with dave douglas

could do all the moves but think making the clip of the in situ draw will be desperate!
