Rockfax Description
Re-gearing has made this virtually a clip-up. The climbing is also much harder since the filling in of a chipped hold at the top of the ramp. Climb up to the ramp and follow it to its end. Step right to pockets on the wall then move up right to easier ground (good large nut out right). Move back left to a lower-off. © Rockfax

FA. Pete Gomersall 1984. The route name refers to the first ascensionist's feelings about the use of chipped holds. Since filled in and reclimbed and regraded.

thebigfriendlymoose 14 Jun, 2015 Lead RP 4th session: back in the game. Amazing how the discovery of an intricate yet ineluctable sequence can dispel the winter blues and fuel a year's mojo. Now for the direct start.
