Rockfax Description
A popular classic that heads straight up the steepening wall right of Exponential Exhaustion. There is a small rest below the roof before a big spike-jug provides the key to the finish. © Rockfax

FA. Mick Lovatt, Ian Horrocks 1988. A large wobbly jug went AWOL in the late 1990's and the grade went up to 8a. It has now been restored to its original grade by the addition of a similar large jug..

βeta: The bolts are spaced - stupid bolting! If you've dogged it to the top with a clip stick it's a straight forward route to RP. On-sight with no prior knowledge it's harder to clip the bolts than to climb it!

βeta: I'd agree it's solid 7c. The bottom wall is the crux but you need a bit in reserve for the finish. Bolts are spaced, adding character...

βeta: solid 7c even with the bigger hold - the crux was always the lower part. Shame that the bolts are so badly positioned - best to ask someone else to put the quickdraws in for you!

βeta: Has now been re-bolted (eventually)! I'll sort out that glue-on later in the summer.. can't have a route of mine put down into the punter stakes! but then again I suppose it always was? The route name was an American import (nothing to do with climbing though) Full title " A Biological Need For A Boys Night Out"
