30m. A classic slab climb. Climb the steady stepped crack to a good flake. Traverse due left and then back right (crucial RPs) into a niche. Finish up the steepening wall on good holds (often wet) to a tree.

Sarahcrowsley 20 Apr Lead Lovely climbing, bold in the middle. I think the moves into the niche are particularly committing for the particularly short. The only thing that stopped me skuttling off left into the corner was that I have previous experience of how horrendous that severe is ;-) - running out an E2 seemed like the better option!

Found it quite tough but really good climbing. Top section was soaking (the jug I used to pull over the top had a puddle) but was all on good holds so no worries. Good route!

Andy Moles 10 Apr, 2011 AltLd O/S Looked at the wrong line on the topo (In the Groove), went right at the flake and climbed the top pitch of Travellin' Man by mistake. Then Ferdia led the first pitch of TM and the rest of this! Brilliant but wet, if it's seeping it's worth waiting til the afternoon when the streaks shrink in the sun. ****
