Rockfax Description
A link-up that takes in the crux moves of three lines. Start just right of the large block as for Prisoner of Conscience.
Climb the lower wall moving right to the crux of Bullworker and finally move right to finish as for El Chocco. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A link up of the start (crux) of Prisoner of Conscience, the middle (crux) of Bullworker, and finish (crux) of El Chocco make for a sustained route!

Finishing up the rest of Bullworker instead of moving right to the finish of El Chocco makes a good f7c+ link-up. (FA. Dave Pickford/Ally Smith, 2007)

Ally Smith 1 Apr, 2017 Lead RP Yyfy! Finally, after trying it 1 day a year on and off for the last 6 years i made it up this superb and sustained route. I used to think it might be 8a+ but today I got shown some bombproof beta for top crux and it all came together :-D

quiffhanger 25 Sep, 2016 Lead RP Psyched to get up this. 2nd "proper" redpoint but I had played on it quite a few times over the years so the send felt like a long time coming. Key for me was some beta which allowed me to get the top pocket with my left, making the final El Chocco crux a bit easier.

quiffhanger 11 Sep, 2016 Lead dog Found some good beta for the top. Thought it was going to go but arrived at the jug after the Bullworker crux bolloxed out my mind and barely able to hang onto it let alone recover...

Ged Desforges ??, 2011 - Very good route. Good 7c+ if you do the normal bullworker finish. A different proposition altogether to finish up el chocco! puts it at proper proper 8a
