The King of Ming (Redundant)** 7b+
The bolted indirect version of Virgin on the Loose. Joins Big Nose to a lower off.
Moving right at the start is some what harder now. Now completely superseded by the following route. (FIRST 2 HANGERS REMOVED)

drcorbasisgod - Lead dog - Apr/14 with Marc Weisner

Messed up crux sequence on the onsight when I went up with my left instead of right. Flashed the rest and then got in on the first RP, in the dark! Hard to onsight but relatively easy to RP.

Superb. Just sneaks into 7b+, would be 3 stars but for some loose rock. Ellie deserved the tick way more than me :(
Joe Costello - Lead RP - 17/Jul/12 with Ellie, James

Didn't feel that soft to me. Plus broke a hold off so the start is a bit trickier now
highrepute - Lead RP - 11/Jul/12

Warmed up at minus ten then did this in the pouring rain after the Sellars put the clips in. Back to the works to dry off. LTD!

Nice technical climbing
DDDD - Lead RP - 29/Jun/12 with Seb Grieve

Probably deserves the 2 stars in the context of Stoney. Soft for 7b+.
