18m. A direct eliminate line between Little Steve's Mersey Tunnel Affair and Cristel Wall, offering some nice moves up the shallow runnel to finish. Take a small cam (Friend 1).

No great protection for the crux; nothing above and only a pair of opposing wires just below. The move into the runnel had me twitching but once I stepped up a good side pull out left made it all the better. Nice climb, although a VS as first route of the day and after the rain had not long stopped maybe not best choice...

To reach a final decision on the grade. 4b and just VS. The cam(s) protecting the crux are good, but there's a foot-ledge not far below them, and the one or two crux moves are quite thin.

with Clare
bpmclimb 13/Mar/11 Solo O/S

Possibly bottom end VS? Moves up the runnel seem a tad bold.
