Fantastic slab in the far corner, easy moves up on to the slab, where the fun then begins in earnest4th-5th bolt finger pocket to crimp and undercut with smearing nice and balancy. The climb seems to constantly be in the sun and takes a great line over the slab. For the tick avoid the crack at the top after the crimp and undercut and instead traverse left on the slab.

Humpty Dangler 26 Apr, 2008 AltLd dog Ok, so dogged isn't the word; eaten by a pack of hyaenas would be closer to the mark. This route is in a fantastic location, a corner that catches the sun. Step up easily onto the slab and then it all starts to get difficult. Some moves I couldn't do: step up on a very small right foot friction hold, with nothing for the hands; I resorted to pulling up on the quick-draw; similar again on the next bolt and on the next I used a bolt as a foothold just to get to the top. I used to think myself reasonably good on slabs but this one utterly defeated me.
