Gave it a bit of a clean then shunted up.
Found the jamming crack at the top really sustained.Conan - TR - 02/Sep/14
Blocks at the top look more unstable than I remember, would not be a good idea to take a fall on this upper part. I think it now deserves E1 5a due to the seriousness of the objective danger. Lead as one pitch.

I've cleaned it!!! Great route. Please go climb it. It'll get better with traffic.
I did it in one pitch. Take long or lots of slings for the top (tree).

The crack up the slab was choked with vegetation, (now much clearer). The upper groove now feels / looks very unstable (day light visible through blocks), I got halfway up groove and reversed back to slab & escaped right accross slab to Deceptive Bends and finished for this.
Place good runners at the top if the crack and traverse right & slightly down to join deceptive bends, follow this past peg to top. (E1 5a/b).
A very good alternate finish to Third World.

Fantastic climb! Follows a thin crack up a huge slab, then a terrifying traverse to the right and a scramble up some very loose rocky earth. again i hit this one a bit late and Leighn ended up seconding it in the dark (an impressive feat).
I recommend having two sets of nuts for this one as i ended with two lonely nuts left and had to really work to find good nut placements.

This is a very fine route, best done as one pitch, but you'll need a lot of quick draws.
