55m, 2 pitches. Blade Runner 7a, 7a
The main pitch climbs the sharp arete right of Live Theatre. Start as for Joie de Vivre.
1. 25m 7a. Climb the initial ramp of Joie de Vivre to the 3rd bolt. Step up left into a shallow scoop and climb flakes to a good ledge. Thin moves over a bulge and leftwards to reach better holds and the Joie de Vivre belay. Go up easily up right for 5m and step down right to a ledge and bolt belays.
2. 30m 7a. Step across right to reach the edge and follow this with sustained moves for 10m. Continue past an awkward overlap until a left slanting crack leads to a roof. Step up left and tip toe back right above the roof. Use a drill hole in the slab to gain better holds and up left to the top.
