38m. The obvious long clean strip above a quarryman's spike in the ground. Pad up the slab to a large tree belay. Sparse protection: possibly VS if you don't deviate from the direct line to place gear. NOTE: it's very easy to stray left onto The Socialist. Keep your blinkers on, climb direct, and keep an eye out for gear placements slightly right.

Really satisfying climb, plenty of gear, even if you take the direct line, you can place nuts in camming positions in a lot of the pockets. Tried to take as direct a line as I could. Really nice belay spot, comfy and with a lovely view of the northern end of the quarry. Abseiled of the chains to get back instead of scrambling down the alpine ridge.

Took as direct a line as I could avoiding the juggier bits to either side. definitely felt VS (harder than Rob's Crack), but I can imagine straying either left or right gives much easier options. Decent enough gear for the angle, but sometimes the over-warn cracks are so because people have tried and failed to find gear rather than it being a well used placement (either that or my gear was poor). In situ chain around the tree for rappel.

I didn't use any side runners, meaning the first half of the route was reasonably bold. There is gear to be had (smallest micros, nuts and a cam), but it is spaced and none of it is particularly great. I just reasoned that the fall would be quite soft so poor gear might hold. Nice climbing though. Never particularly hard, but enjoyable.

Easier than I remember it being first time around. Difficult to know how far you can wander before being off-route. Someone was climbing on the VS to the right at the same time and a lot of loose rock was coming down!

Nice route - first HS lead. A big chunk has recently fallen off at 3/4 height on the right hand side but this hasn't affected the climbing.
