Rockfax Description
Another good route, although it is a little run-out, and the bolts are very hard to clip if you are short. Virtually a 6a+ sport route. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start 3m right of Bella Lugosi below a triangular niche at 8m. Climb directly up and into the niche. Make a hard move to start up this. Continue up and right on small holds to the lower off.

Ticklists: North Wales Rock Graded List, All the Llanberis SLATE sport @ 6a & 6a+, Slate Sport.

good climbing standard slate bolting but not that scary, lower off bolt spins, really should get sorted to protect the staple?

Only deserves trad grade if draws aren't in or if you are very short, and its never E1, maybe HVS, more like run out 6a sport.

Alzheimer's flash. Didn't think I'd ever done this but the logbook says otherwise! Good small nut well before 1st bolt, but soon ends up well below you before you clip the 1st bolt.

raidiun 03/Dec/16 Lead O/S

Quite enjoyed run out sport. Evidently bolted by someone taller than me. Had to make a move up from the triangular niche to get the second bolt.

The 3 bolts are just enough to keep you on edge through a lot of the climbing, but the moves are good. Lower off has a dodgy bolt mind, thankfully the resin staple is sound.

A good warm up route. Does feel a bit like a sports route the bolts are quite spaced. I think its E1 if you can reach the holds E2 if you can't reach the holds.

Lead after Misha, bolts clipped and one micro in place, hence lead beta. Hilariously bolted!

with Misha CC
Misha 21/Jun/15 Lead O/S

One of those sporty sport routes. Other than a small wire low down, unprotected to the first bolt but fairly straightforward. After that it's not that hard (some easy 5b) and the tricky moves are next to or not far above the first and second bolts. Got a comedy micro in the triangular groove before stepping up to clip the second bolt. Couple of number 1ish nuts available next to the third bolt so used them, it's easy above anyway.

Pete_Frost 19/Jun/15 Lead O/S

No gear below the first bolt. Climbing out of the niche is technical but safe. WARNING: the screw-in lower-off bolt is loose in it's hole and needs replacing. We backed-up the solid glue-in bolt with a nearby ash tree instead.

The second bolt position isn't that bad/alarming - just adds a bit of exposure, so a trad grade is probably more apt.
