Rockfax Description
Another great route, which is hard to read low down, as there is no real line to follow. Start 10m right of Cystitis By Proxy at the first 'landing pad'. Climb the slab to a horizontal break at 10m. Continue on for 5m to a leftwards traverse and some micro wires. Move up to a bolt runner, make a desperate move past this, and then follow a leftward-trending line to the broken ledges. Take the left bolt line. At the first bolt, traverse left for 4m to below the bolt shared with Released From Treatment, move up to this. From here, either step left and head direct, or take a diagonally rising line leftwards to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
This route finding masterpiece is the easiest of the hard routes right of Poetry Pink. Start at a step in the scree 4m right of Cystitis by Proxy. Climb directly to a thin break and gear. Trend up and slightly left to easier ground and small wires before climbing direct to the first bolt. Make hard moves up and left past it up to the rainbow and easy climbing to clip the first bolt on Cystitis. Pick out the line traversing left for 4m to gain reasonable holds and the bolt on Released from Treatment. Continue up and left to the top grinning from ear to ear. Brilliant.

Fairly good gear for E5, the difficulty is in the moves. Skyhooks handy.

Scary route, and hard route finding. the bolts are basically the only worth wile protection.

Went to try the rainbow but it was wet so tried this instead but without guide. Popped off the crux first go. Second go made it to the rainbow but then went off route and lowered-off in fear of getting stranded on some slate E7. Awesome fun though.
