Rockfax Description
Head up Inverted V for 5m then traverse right along the lowest break and make unlikely-looking pulls up the bulging arete. Once back in balance, finish up the exposed rounded rib - low in the grade. The direct start is the reachy Our Version, E3 6a. © Rockfax

Steve Waters, Mynydd 23 May, 2007 Lead O/S Fantastic traverse - easier than Ellis's eliminate which I had led earlier in the evening. The crux was well protected by 2 Hex's in the main crack and a Camalot placed as far as I could reach along the traverse break before launching across. Good foot holds along the traverse. I managed to get a second Camalot further along the break whilst my left hand was wedged in fantastic hand jam. The traverse finished with a long reach to pull up onto the face. The climb was then a series of step ups on sloping holds with a good big cam halfway up.

Reaver2k 20 May, 2007 2nd O/S 4c? Didn't find that move! 5a! Polished start up Inverted V obviously still very easy. Traverse out right couldn't find anything for my feet! Mike didn't put any protection in which I think is possible when moving out right? Would be tricky to place though. My feet let loose and couldn't find anywhere for them so I muscled up for the jug. 4c maybe but wouldn't like to lead it with the protection that was in, would be very scary! Move out right onto the main face and this is where I found it tricky. Trying to find my feet without any handholds, needed an extra 2 inches to get a good grip on a slopper so stuck a foot on and sorta "hopped" onto one, never leading that unless I grow! Rest was easy, loved it!
