17m. Steep and entertaining moves up the leaning wall. The climbing is most easily started just to the right of the first bolts (old peg at 3m) however going direct via the first couple of bolts is good but harder. As described it incorporates Alternative Option and Extra Optional (see below).
FA. (Optional Extra) Martin Berzins and others 1985. Started slightly left as Alternative Option by Mark Radtke 2002. Extended as Extra Optional by Matt Triolett 2002.


First bolt in a difficult spot to reach and needs a stick clip. Good pitch with one difficult move but solid climbing.Good fun.

Probaby worth 7a+ for the fairy sustained nature of the climbing. 2 star climbing on 1 star rock (to quote a phrase).

Did the fairy bring her wand???

No. She could have done with a bit of glue as it's a bit loose in places, but that should clear up with some traffic.

good route, pretty sustained and the finish feels pumpy. watch out for loose rock, dont belay directly underneath
