Gin Palace*** 7c
[strugeling on gin palace, 2 kb]18m. One of many gems left scattered around, courtesy of Yorkshires finest acid folk DJ. Ascend the obvious hanging groove past numerous bolts, pull the roof out L and finish up the energy sapping crack. Slightly obnoxious but so much fun - very Smith. Think working on a building site

What an introduction to slate! Heavily dogged and couldn't make it out of the groove into the top crack. Exhausting!

awesome route. Feels quite hard for 7c but not done much on slate so don't know. 4th bolt was a bit loose, can pull it out about 1cm, (with full body weight pulling out on it).

Someone forgot to attach the big holds...

Amazing. A bit of water in the top is my excuse. Nothing to do with the huge amount of energy to make one microns progress of course.
