UKC

142m, 7 pitches. A brilliant, sustained trip crossing the central section of the main cliff.
7 pitches - 5b,5a,5c,5b,5c,5c,4c. The third pitch descends the Alien chimney from the Rat Race belay. There is a trick to this involving the spike at the start of the main pitch of Positron.

M. Fowler, J. Stevenson Sep/1976.
