A pleasing although wandering pitch that links up some good bits of other lines. Follow Sleeping Sickness, then Assagai, but continue the traverse to finish up Doubting Thomas.

Thin lower crack worth 5b - not 5a as in the BMC Lancs brick.

Well protected throughout and is probably 5b for the short. There's certainly a lot of 5a on it. Really good fun and never too sustained.

Its fine for shorties if you can use your feet. True that there's an inconsistency in the guide re the start.

the final part of this route traversing out from Assegai and then ascending on horizontal breaks and flutings is magnificent
Michael Simpson - 14/Jun/07

First bit is the crux - just one move after that really - nice though
