15m. A fabulous outing with escalating difficulty, breaching the back wall of the cave with brilliant moves on impeccable rock. Start at back of the cave, as for Losing My Religion (i.e. on the other side of the cave from Christine and Blue Planet). Varied, athletic moves (even some jamming) lead leftwards across the cave's back wall to gain a prominent flake above a big black niche. Layback the flake for a metre to a shake-out (people with the correct leg size will find it possible to get a no-hander here; if so, take a grade off), then traverse crimp rails leftwards to meet Christine in the middle of its initial bouldery wall, and follow this into the big rest at the back of the roof. 3 possibilities from here: (i) jump off; (ii) traverse leftwards into a whole world of pigeon shit, to gain the Christine starting ledge; (iii) continue up Christine. Steve himself would have favoured the ridiculous eccentricity of option (ii)!
