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.

Sustained but well protected until you get to above the flake (I got pretty bad foot pump!), afterwards the climbing is a bit easier but still sustained and much more run out! 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!

Came back in the afternoon hoping it was dry. It wasnt making for some very exciting climbing to the ab point.

Had a hell of a time trying to do the left traverse a bit too high. Got it in the end after probably more than an hour on the lead.

This is fab. Really suited me. Very similar to the Pillar only not quite as good, and felt bold for E2.

Fantastic climbing the whole way. I obviously missed the crucial RPs mentioned in the route description though, was pretty run out!

May have strayed to the left a little. But class climbing up the slab nevertheless.

climbed as 2 pitches (see below comment!) led '2nd' crux pitch from Travellin' Man belay. very wet overhanging section, but surprised the route doesn't get 4 stars in gary latter's guide. up there with The Bug as the best E2 I've ever climbed.

Andy Moles 10/Apr/11 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. ****
