Pete had previously climbed 'Masters..' ground up... well, ground up apart from the abseil in! Maybe 'Abseil Up' is the correct style description. He then looked for a way to dispense with the ab rope.
The new route starts on the left edge of the block and traverses a line lower than the existing girdle, Silent Spring (E4 5c).
