A very good link up which starts at Nelson Mandela, then crosses East of Sweden to finish up Blabba Mouth taking the cruxes of each route one after the other. Start up Nelson Mandela and climb the lower half to the break. Make a move up to the big shared hold of East of Sweden. Then begin the tricky move up the steep shallow groove to good holds just above the bolt. Now step right to gain a big spike side pull on Blabba Mouth and continue up this passing some perplexing moves on small sloping edges.

Additional info:
Clip first 3 on Nelson. Clip one on East of Sweden then use bolts on Blabba Mouth to lower off - it's not too hard to work out. I hope.

J1_TOV 15 Jul, 2019 Lead dog Got both cruxes some 3 or 4 times (I'd obv done the routes before, too) but didn't manage to link everything. Start of Nelson is a bit horrible with greasy jugs but after bolt 1 you've got a good line.

ericinbristol 1 May, 2019 Lead RP Fourth try. Change of one foot position made all the difference. Very enjoyable.

ericinbristol 26 Apr, 2019 Lead dog Logical line. I had already done NN, EoS and BM. First session on the link-up: got it in two parts and did some refining. WIll get on redpoint next time.

Stuart William 2 Sep, 2017 Lead dog Despite onsighting nelson Mandela earlier couldn't do the crux a second time. Took a wee while to figure out the top moves as well.

Wise u 31 May, 2017 Lead RP Actually quite a logical line as it takes in the cruxes of all three routes. I really enjoyed this. We moved right at the break and avoided the knee bar rest on Mandela (but it's still a pretty good rest). Only 7b+ for me.

DorsetGareth 27 May, 2017 Lead dog Pretty good :) got to the last crux on lead, but was too pumped. Avoided using the knee bar rest to the left, which feels like 7c.
