Rockfax Description
This is the original line of Pleasure Dome which gives great exposed climbing after a difficult start.
1) 5c, 20m. Climb a wall - thin on gear - to reach a crack to the right of an overlap. Make some steep pulls up this then trend right to the bulge. Pull over past a peg and thread then move right to a stance on Pothole Wall.
2) 5b, 14m. Swing left and up to a ledge then climb up and right to another ledge in a spectacular position. Finish up a crack. © Rockfax

βeta: This is the proper original line of Pleasure Dome which starts up the wall left of the version marked in more recent guidebooks. If you climbed this you may need to re-log it.
