The thin wall by the graffiti that gives this route its name. Challenging climbing leads to a reasonable break. A final committing sequence gains a lower-off. © Rockfax

Ed Houghton 11 Jun, 2018 Lead dog Found this really hard but with enjoyable moves. Definitely easier for tall people (I'm 6'2" and used full reach after the rest to start the last sequence). Got all the moves but time and tiredness prevented a redpoint attempt.

rockafunked 28 Aug, 2017 Lead dog Put the draws in. Finally worked out the moves at the last two bolts. Will need to return to actually redpoint it - fluffed the technical bits on the lower half of the wall repeatedly.

SGD 14 Mar, 2016 Lead dog Shut down by dept C. Hard lower wall on sloper crimps with big/reachy moves lead to a sloping ledge and a tricky move left to a rest then I couldn't work out the moves and fell off. Took a few goes to suss the really powerful weird undercut move past the last bolt then fell off trying to get the lower off. Excellent route though.
