30m. Start up groove line just left of the stone wall at the lower (west) end of the Reservoir. Follow groove fairly easily to where it steepens. Step left. Hard moves past a bolt gain the groove (which has a number of old aid/ FFA pegs) left of the top of Heavy Metal Eurotrash . Pull up over the overlap into the top groove to the bolt belay of Heavy Metal Eurotrash.
The start follows a line of 4 bolts up a more solid groove than the original route, which was further left. This can also be used as a more direct start to Heavy Metal Eurotrash.
Bolted with FFA's agreement having removed substantial ivy from this wall.
