Bold and thin moves with limited protection. Begin 3m to the left of the diagonal grass strip that divides The Glacis and left of a thin seam. Precarious moves gain a reasonable hold at 6m (cam slot out to the right). Head up and then leftwards past a small overlap to reach the line of Caveman/Lunar Landscape. Move left and finish up the bald slab. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
A sought-after lead! Start 3m left of the grassy ramp, just left of a hairline crack. Make hard moves, past microwire placements at 4m, to reach a good hold (slightly offline to the right at 6m is a cam slot: possibly E3 using this, more direct and bolder without). Climb up and then leftwards over a tiny overlap to good cracks (on Caveman); then step left again to finish up another blank area of the slab.
The original line, more suited to a solo ascent, went up right from the overlap and finished as for Slight of Hand.
