Bridge up the corner, reaching out to clip the bolt, and make hard moves up the slab on the right to reach the ledge and bolt. Follow the flake to the top, or the lower-off to the left. © Rockfax

The lanky man 26 Aug Lead O/S Only bridged over to the right once as was trying not to use the corner, as the guide states this is an eliminate line avoiding the corner. Although the description on here says you bridge up the corner!? And everyone saying it's quite soft so I guess that's what folk are doing... Rather run out, you'd deck if you slipped just below the 2nd bolt. Would be better with an extra bolt and just give it 6a+?

thescaredclimber 26 Aug 2nd RP Really nice route I thought. Didn’t use the corner as it said not to in the guide? Seconded again thanks to the holey shoes, would like to lead. Slipped off like 2 foot from the floor a couple times before doing clean (I blame the shoes)

RockPhoenix 2 Jan Lead O/S Absolutely loved this route, bridging, crimping and lay-backing with enough space between & after the two bolts to create a sense of adventure. The final move using the layback saw me using a wicked foot move that I don't think I've used before - I felt very professional :-) Would do this one again for sure. Never totally trust using just one lower off bolt however!
