UKC Logbook Description
A puzzler. Climb the slabby wall left of sulky little boys using a henous sloper and a cheat crimp on the right.

get the pocket using a toe hook... mantle out sloper. More to this than it looks on first viewing. nice problem

Pulled onto sloper. Right hand into pocket then rocked a looong way right with foot on the high crimp to reach the top. Felt hard but not 7a+.

Used the cheating crimp, probably about 6b with that.

Did it properly this time - no stretching straight to the pocket!

jkarran 20/Feb/10 Sent

Stretching is paying off, couldn't get my foot up last time I tried this.
