Superstition is the short and extremely difficult wall to the left of The Promise and Ben took advantage of the recent snowy conditions to make a highball (snowball) ascent above snow and bouldering mats.
The route is extremely technical, featuring tiny holds and the possibility of gear in a thin break if climbed with ropes. It was first climbed back in 1999 by Miles Gibson and was one of the few routes that stopped 'Team America' on their gritstone adventures back in 2008.
Here's Ben's excellent video of his ascent:
