UKC Logbook Description
The wall right of Youth, starting higher up on some blocks. Start via a mantleshelve, follow a lovely flake and finishing slightly rightwards up a short wall using two perfect pockets. There is an optional boulder problem start on the front of the block below (HD 10m).

N.B. This line was also claimed as "Old Man" in 2000, but the subsequent guide gave than name to a different route altogether!

From Lee Bower "I first did it about 35 years ago and have been doing it every time I go to Hign Neb. And every new guidebook I feel sure someones going to claim it. However, no one has so here goes"

Lee Bower 1978

I've looked for this route three times now and I'm still not sure if I've found it. Where is the 'thank god' pocket?
