One of Gower's classics. An immaculate wall climb with a tiring and bulging finish. It was the first of the old aid routes to fall to Sharp, and remains one of the best routes at Rhossili. Start at a scoop with two laughable ring bolts. 6a climbing leads to the ledge and rest, with a wire to protect the step up and right to a good peg below the blank middle section. Get through this to a huge crack, bomber wire and a peg above. Now attack the bulges and finish.

A Sharp, J Harwood 1986.
