17m. Classic ban-y-gor, hard to get off the ground, pumpy and awkward but a real classic. Start as for Always The Rain, but break out right after the first bolt, heading for the right arete of the headwall. Pull up onto the big ledge and then figure out how to leave it and join the arete before reaching easier ground and the shared lower off.

βeta: Clip second bolt and pull up on the flake. Get feet far to the right and get your left hand around the really small break. Reach high and right for a huge hidden jug. Pull up on this to get up to the ledge.

Ashley King 5 May Lead RP Got this on the second try, was just a matter of working out the beta to get over the first bulge, the rest is fairly simple.

springfall2008 4 Oct, 2018 Lead dog Did so well up to the ledge, but it all went badly after that. Failed a few times to pull up over the arete and then my right hand and thumb started to hurt. Made it up eventually but not without benefiting from the rope.

SteveLobley 8 Jul, 2018 Lead dog Tough one, disappointed in myself. Just couldn't deal with the slightly bold (for me) left hand lay back over the top of the arete to finish the high reach right hand. Had to rest and compose myself and then did it. Next time it will fall.

spoonernz 3 Jul, 2016 Lead O/S Enjoyed it. Thought I was off-route at the top but from reading the description it just veers away from the bolts a bit.
