30m. A hard classic. Start below and 10m left of the big corner of Bludgeon. Climb up to a niche below the crack. Pull up to the mid-height break and then launch yourself into the upper crack (usually past some stuck wires). Climb it to the top.

Short-lived but serious butch, easy to imagine being "sorted out" by this route. Some hard, unlikely moves, and currently 3 merciful (but unnecessary) in-situ wires.

John: "Is it climbed on hand or finger jams?"

Fiend: "It's mostly climbed on pain!"

later...

John (seconding crux and in a rather belligerent voice): "That move was highly improbable..."

Very good route we thought. First half is about V-Diff, but the top half packs it in! Safe as, but some proper moves!

excellent, hard work though.
