A big butch diagonal that originally started by climbing the first 4m of The File creating a rope-work nightmare. Climb Bat Out of Hell to its second break. Now make a strength-sapping hand-traverse left to reach the crux of The Rasp. Up this to the niche then traverse left under the roofs to a finish through the exposed notch.

froggat guide gives it E4 and after falling from the last move I tend to agree safe but extremely pumpy!!!!!

Did this last week. Stunning route. A particularly hard move in the middle, moving past the diagonal part of the break between BOOH and The Rasp. Certainly 6a, not 5c. Well protected.
