Start 4m right of the drop to the Green Meanie area. Boulder bravely up the lower wall on concretions to the first in situ thread. Continue to the second thread, then make tricky and mildly bold moves to gain better holds and gear at the point where the angle eases. Continue with care, trending left, up the easier but slightly dubious cracked wall.

Ticklists: Ultimate E2 ticklist.

Never planned to do it but after abbing off motion pictures it looked rite up my street. The start is easer than it looked getting to the peg but would be nasty if u dropped it or somethin broke off. Once first thread clipped it's a pleasure. Loved it.

Dropped the reach as didn't have high enough left foot but it's not as bad once you give it a lock off and a stretch. Thread tat in good condition at the mo. Good enough protection elsewhere too. Excellent 5a moves up to the top.

Graeme Hammond 30/May/17 Lead G/U

Replaced threads on abseil, the bottom one could be fatter but can be backed up (but at least its new!). It ended up a bit shorter so you have to fully do the crux move before clipping (though this still might have been the case previously as the old one wasn't that much longer). This wasn't intentional and if this is the case it might be better if you like the buzz but less good if you are not keen on the rocky landing in which case perhaps you could always pre-place the draw after doing Motion Picture or are even pre-clip it if you prefer cheating(?) or like your ankles in one piece. Jumped off the start moves instead of reversing fully to the ground a couple of times before committing to the crux move above the less than perfect landing to get to the first gear/thread if you came off in an uncontrolled way it might be nasty. logged as G/U due to the jumps but bit of a mixed approach as replacing the threads gave a fair amount of beta too.

Completely misread the crux reach, ended up wronghanded on the tiniest of edges. In a moment of madness I then snatched for the juggy concretion at the first thread. While I'm pleased that I caught it (just), that was an utterly stupid, reckless thing to do.

After leading Last Call and heading across to lower off. Lovely route. Would love to lead it one day.

jsmcfarland 28/May/15 Lead O/S

The quality climbing is short and sweet. Great crimpy moves up to the first gear at a few meters up. Good footwork is needed to avoid peeling off. I used the high-friction undercut/sidepull and stretched for my left-hand, but there are more secure ways of doing it! After the first thread things ease off to E1/HVS climbing for the rest of the route and is pretty enjoyable. Good gear and easy moves. ***

Bold start. Comparable difficulty to the crux on Moving Pictures, but without gear, so if we're being consistent about grades it should definitely be E2.
