10m.

Rockfax Description
10m. The elegant arete of Dangerous Crocodile Snogging is technical and bold, and involves vertical 'a cheval' movements taken at a gallop, in an effort to gain height. Formerly soloed (at E8). A distant massive cam or possibly something even larger may protect ....... well sort of! Impossible for most and especially the short! © Rockfax

FA. Seb Grieve Friday 13 September 1991. A typical choice of date for Seb to solo the first ascent

northy1983 7 Sep Lead Holy moly, what a line. Took a massive whipper on the cut loose and decked out, then plucked up the balls to go back up and finish the job. Only just possible with my t-rex arms with the heros layback method seemed like the logical choice. 3 stars all the way!!

Seb Grieve 13 Sep, 1991 Solo Soloed (Friend 6 did not exist.) with home-made knee-pads made from bathroom towels for added friction. Jeans are a good idea as well. Swinging across with a guppy and a pinch to the a-cheval position is the crux. Coming out of a-cheval to final layback is the heart-stopper and impossible to choreograph due to the 'knee-pad drift'. Felt very E8 at the time. Harder and bolder than Gaia and End of the Affair.
