Also called White Dust (or Powder) Opera. Climb the steep fingery wall left of the undercut inverted V groove, moving right to the obvious block above the groove. Continue rightwards until an excellent jamming crack leads to the wall above and the top.(

This ascent is dedicated to the memory of the small slug that occupied the finger crack above the crux.

Still a bit dynamic into the crack. Not very much control.

Led with some pre placed gear as Dave had just done it and I didnt want to second before leading. Awesome climb, possibly the best route in Leicestershire in my opinion. Gear is bomber if you have some nice small stuff and the climbing is pretty sustained until the last bit of gear then easier climing to the top. Really lovely moves and finger jams and seemingly rubbish smears that somehow work if you get it right.

belayed sam, but he took a lob once he got to the crack. Pulled the ropes and i lead it clean with the pre-placed pro. Pumpy moves. Very worthwhile
