Fine technical climbing up the blank arching wall. Use a couple of chipped pockets on the right to climb the lower leaning wall leftwards, pass the bulge via wild mantel and finish direct. It gets popular when there is a snow drift and it can be highballed at f7A. There is even a left-hand version called Snow Blind Mice, f7B but this hasn't yet been done 'snow-less'.

Spoilt, unfrotunately, by the close proximity of the dank recess on the right. Easy once stood above the bulge.

Maybe it should read, hard for the long legged. Getting feet up over the bulge to stand up is tough. Lower moves easier for the tall though i would imagine.

I assume you mean the undercut like chip just below the bulge. Its been there for as long as i have looked at the route whihc is about 2 years. Not sure whether it is actually a chip or just a bit of gritstone oddness. You don't need it at allll however to climb the route, so would seem odd to chip it there.
